Sleepovers for Adults: A Night at the Museum

Lunar Lounge_RM_140801_3723

Why should kids have all the fun?

The American Museum of Natural History will again host its wildly popular adults-only sleepover adventure. Built on the successful family sleepover program, adults ages 21 and up will enjoy a more sophisticated version of the popular event. 

The overnight adventure will begin with a champagne reception and music provided by the 12th Night Jazz Trio in the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall.  Explorers can expect to roam through the nearly empty halls of the Museum, where they might run into a herd of elephants in the Akeley Hall of African Mammals or come face to face with looming dinosaur skeletons, including a 65-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex.

As the evening winds down, guests will be able to unroll their sleeping bags and curl up under the beloved 94-foot-long blue whale in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life.

This one-of-a-kind evening offers visitors an intimate adventure of discovery that is unlike anything they have ever experienced.
