Have your very own night at the Museum! Our family-friendly sleepovers offer a whole new way for NHM to come to life. Become a night-time paleontologist and have your own dinosaur encounter, go on an epic bug hunt, or travel back in time and go on an Antarctic expedition to dig up dinosaurs on the lost continent.


Sleepovers include access to Museum exhibits after-hours, 3D movies, themed crafts, activities, scavenger hunt, special performances, and also includes an evening snack and continental breakfast the next day. Ask our knowledgeable Gallery Interpreters and Volunteers one-on-one questions about our exhibits and see special touch-specimens to match each theme. Each sleepover event gives you complimentary Museum Admission passes to further explore the Museum the next day.


For children ages 5 - 12. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
