Have you ever thought about how your night would be if you spent it in a museum? It’s fascinating and it’s clearly not a night like any other. This is no longer an imagination as it is already happening in various museums across the globe and especially in the United States. All you have to do is carry your sleeping bag, a flashlight. Many kids actually love this. Here are some of the museums where you can spend an overnight.
- The Field Museum in Chicago
The Field Museum in Chicago is one of the museums where kids can spend overnight. The museum offers a themed night for those aged from 6 to 12 years during the ‘Dozin’ with the Dinos’ night. It’s basically spending a night with dinosaurs. There are plenty of activities for them as they watch some movies, learn more about the lizard and visiting the various exhibitions available.
- Monterey Bay Aquarium
For those that love marine life and those that love the movie ‘Finding Dory’, they will have an amazing night at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Your ‘Sleepovers at the Aquarium” packages include several things such as breakfast, snacks, special activities, aquarium access, and wildlife watching. Once you have spent the night and you want more experience, you will have all-day access.
- Cheyenne Mountain Zoo
It’s a fun-filled night when you attend the ‘WildNights’. You have to sign up in advance. Once you are at this museum in Colorado, be ready for animal encounters, enjoying a pizza dinner, a moonlit tour and feeding giraffes. You can spend a night with your little ones. You have more time to explore the museum in the morning of spending the night.
- Oregon Museum of Science and Industry
This is a place that every kid will be fascinated about as they spend a night at USS Blueback, a retired Navy submarine. The fact that one will spend a night aboard a submarine is exciting enough for children. The package includes exploring the USS Blueback, enjoying a planetarium show, explore the entire museum and have a delicious dinner.
- The Penn Museum
Based in Philadelphia, this is a unique museum where one can engage in a scavenger hunt that involves Ancient Egypt. You have to sign up for ’40 Winks with the Sphinx’ and you will need a flashlight for this. You also have a chance of making up your souvenir takeaway.
