Museum of Science Overnights

An overnight at the Museum of Science is a special program that inspires children to discover science in fun and educational ways. Campers have an opportunity to sleep on the floors of the Museum Exhibit Halls and participate in activities after the Museum closes. A typical Overnight stay includes a variety of hands-on science activities, demonstrations, a Planetarium show, and Omni film, and time to explore the Museum with chaperones.

Registration Opens September 1st
