Sleepovers | Natural History Museum of Los Angeles


Ever wonder what it’s like to spend a night at the Museum? 


Get ready to have the ultimate slumber party in the grand Diorama Halls or even the Dinosaur Hall at NHMLA, or sleep alongside mammoths, direwolves, and saber-toothed cats at the La Brea Tar Pits Museum. You'll have access to explore the Museum after-hours, long after our guests have gone home. 


It's a night filled with fun, family-friendly activities that let you experience the Museums in a whole new way. Will you become a nighttime paleontologist, solve the mysteries of the Museum, or travel back in time to the Ice Age? Grab your family and friends and get ready for a night to remember.
