Be among the lucky few to spend A Night at the Museum!

As the doors close and the lights dim, you and your group will head out with flashlights in search of a variety of adventures.

Meet your relatives in the Anne and Bernard Spitzer Hall of Human Origins. Climb the stairs and enter the Age of Dinosaurs, standing beneath a fearsome T. rex. Then enjoy Amazon Adventure now showing in 3-D in the LeFrak Theater before the night comes to a magical close. Settle down beneath the 94-foot-long blue whale, next to African elephants or at the base of a striking volcanic formation and fall asleep in the darkened halls of one of the world’s most beloved museums.

Space is limited and dates sell out quickly. For the latest availability information and to purchase tickets or gift certificates please call Central Reservations at 212-769-5200, Monday-Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.
