February 23 is 'Work Your Proper Hours Day' organised by the TUC. It's all about getting Britain's army of office workers away from computer screens and out into fresh air. To give you somewhere cultural to eat your sandwiches, 24 Hour Museum is pleased to present a lunchtime trail of museums in the city.

Click on the museum title to find out more about each venue.

Before you get out into the fresh air, just to remind your colleagues where you are off to, and why you are going, why not use this desk reminder, specially designed by the Work Your Proper Hours Team at the TUC?

Download the sign and print it out, fold in half and plonk it on your desk one way round whilst you're away at lunch, and simply switch it round at the end of the day to show you're off on time.
