Night in the Museum

Saturday and Sunday, October 6 & 7, 2018

6:30 PM-9:00 AM

This October 6, you can celebrate the start of the spooky season by experiencing the Academy’s towering dinosaurs—including T. rex—after dark!

Take a flashlight tour of our Xtreme Bugs exhibit if you dare—you’ll come face-to-feet with giant animatronic bugs. Meet some creepy crawlies, and go on a hair-raising scavenger hunt. Then join us in the “lab” for some bone-chilling experiments. Explore the dark (and not-so-dark) corners of the museum, including our dino bone dig and butterfly exhibit. Watch a live animal show, hang out with your fellow brave explorers and enjoy delicious snacks. Then pick a sleeping spot next to lions, tigers or dioramas. Night in the BOO-seum is perfect for scout groups, birthday parties, kids’ clubs, sports team retreats, families and others. We can’t wait to spook you there!
