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 Backyard Wilderness 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.
