Dozin’ with the Dinos

Sue the T. rex is having a sleepover!

The lights dim as you explore the rituals of ancient Egyptian culture, guided by the light of your flashlight. Next, you prowl an African savannah with giraffes, hippos, and man-eating lions.  Take a break by playing games from around the world or touching giant bugs from right in your backyard.  Cap your night of exploration and adventure with cozy bedtime stories, before drifting off to dreamland in one of our amazing exhibits. Bring your family and friends for a night at the museum you’ll never forget!
