Special Dinosaurs After Dark Overnight

Saturday and Sunday, January 13 & 14, 2018

6:30 PM-8:30 AM

Experience the Academy’s towering dinosaurs—including T. rex—after dark! Your action-packed night at the museum barely leaves room for shut-eye.

Go on an ancient adventure during this special Night in the Museum! See Tiny Titans: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies like you’ve never seen it before on a flashlight tour, show off your paleo-skills during hands-on games and activities, and jacket your own fossil to take home. Experience our eggs-cellent special exhibit before it leaves the Academy on January 15!

Night in the Museum is perfect for scout groups, birthday parties, kids’ clubs, sports team retreats, and more.
Pick your sleeping spot next to lions, tigers, or dinosaurs.
Go on a scavenger hunt, do a hands-on experiment, or inspect some not-so-creepy crawlies.
Explore every corner of the Academy’s famous exhibits, including our live butterfly garden and dinosaur bone dig. Enjoy a fascinating live animal show. Hang out with your fellow explorers, and enjoy delicious snacks.
Waking up early? A light breakfast and another whole day to explore the museum await.

Check out the Night in the Museum webpage for the full list of details and to purchase tickets!
