Night in the Museum Fundraising

night in the musuem

Experience the Academy’s towering dinosaurs—including T. rex—after dark! Sleepovers at Philadelphia’s dinosaur museum are an amazing way to make memories and fundraise for your school, scout group, sport club, or community organization. Your exclusive event is for your school or group only. The whole museum is yours for the night!

Enjoy close encounters with free-flying butterflies, dig for dinosaur bones, and come face-to-face with the animals in our dioramas. Go on a flashlight scavenger hunt, do hands-on experiments, or even inspect some not-so-creepy crawlies after dark. You’ll have free time to explore every corner of the Academy’s famous exhibits, and then you can sit back and relax as we bring you a fascinating live animal show. When it’s finally time for bed, pick your spot next to lions, tigers, or dinosaurs!
