Sleepovers for Grown-Ups

Adult Sleepover Poison
All Sleepovers are canceled until further notice.

Based on our wildly successful family sleepover, the grown ups-only version is a more sophisticated take on the overnight experience. You'll start the evening with a champagne reception and live music. After that you're invited to roam the nearly empty halls of the Museum, take in Worlds Beyond Earth at the Planetarium, see a nature film, and meet non-human guests in a live animal demonstration. Our special exhibition on the mighty T. rex will be open as well.As the evening winds down, unroll your sleeping bag and curl up under the iconic 94-foot-long blue whale in the Hall of Ocean Life.

Open to:

Ages 21 and up
