London's Science Museum has extended its opening hours to cope with demand as its popular Lord Of The Rings exhibition enters its final days.

The exhibition will remain open until midnight on Friday and Saturday and until 10pm on Sunday so that as many people as possible can enjoy it.

It's estimated that nearly 240,000 people will have seen it when it finishes its four-month run on Sunday.

It features costumes, props and special effects from the hit movies.

Hairy hobbit feet and elf ears have proved of particular interest to visitors.

Smash hit

The exhibition was a smash hit even before it opened, selling a record-breaking 14,000 advance tickets.

And last month its popularity was boosted when the final Lord Of The Rings instalment - Return Of The King - was released in the cinema.
