If you haven’t been through the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff yet, time is running out.

The “Doctor Who“-themed attraction is closing on September 9 after five years in operation, but they’ve got a final jam-packed summer of celebrations and special events.

Filming Location Walking Tours are returning starting on July 8. The 75-minute walk around Cardiff Bay features sites from the current season 10 and memorable locations from previous seasons.

Also on July 8, an updated exhibition will be unveiled including props, costumes, and sets from season 10. Costumes worn by Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie (the current companion, Bill) are already on display.

Fans voted the Yeti from Patrick Troughton-era episode “The Web of Fear” as the villain they’d most like to see restored as part of the exhibit, and Model Unit expert Mike Tucker will be on hand on July 8 to reveal the monster.

On July 22, Doctor Who Experience will host its final Monster Event, which will be all about the Cybermen. The event includes workshops and Q&A sessions with monster-makers Millennium FX, a Mondasian Cyberman roaming the floor, and a chance for fans to be “upgraded” into Cybermen.

The Monster Event concludes with screenings of the two-part “Doctor Who” season finale, which first screens on June 24 and July 1 on BBC One.

On August 5, Doctor Who Experience will host their biggest cosplay celebration yet. Fans are encouraged to dress as their favorite Doctor, companion, or monster. Expect to see Converse sneakers and bow-ties galore.
