Family Sleepovers at the Museum

Registration is now closed as this event is full.

This is our last sleepover for approximately a year, however, we will be offering "late overs" which will have similar programming but guests will go home around 10pm. Please come back soon for more details. 

Participate in science activities as you explore the Museum after hours. Then, unroll your sleeping bag beneath a giant spiral of DNA, a case of sparkling butterflies, or the watchful eyes of an elk. Before you settle in for the night, gather around a virtual campfire for a story. The next morning, enjoy a continental breakfast and then set out for the rest of your day full of memories of your sleepover adventure!
