Surrey Museum in Cloverdale.

SURREY — A new Museum After Dark event will allow guests to look inside the vault at Surrey Museum.

Local wine and tapas will also be served at the event, on Thursday, Nov. 19.

Event details were made public on Friday (Oct. 30).

“Featuring a Dark Things theme, the evening will begin with an introduction from the collections curator, followed by an exclusive guided tour of the vault and small display of rare and unusual dark artifacts, such as demon masks, noir fashions and art made of human hair.”

It’s all an opportunity for adults “to experience the museum in a unique way. Guests will also take part onsite in the popular Twitter game Guess the Artifact and then have a rare opportunity to explore the museum galleries at night at their leisure.”

The event is designed as “a night out where adults can socialize, enjoy local wine and appetizers, and check out some very unusual items from our collection,” said Lynn Saffery, museum manager.

Backyard Vineyards will be onsite, providing a brief wine lecture and offering attendees a glass of their Nosey Neighbor white, red or bubbly. Additional glasses can be purchased for $5.

The 19-plus event runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 and must be purchased in advance at 604-592-6956 or via the Surrey.ca web registration system. Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Ave., Surrey.
