Not-So-Spooky Night in the Museum

Saturday and Sunday, October 21 & 22, 2023

7:00 PM-9:00 AM

Ready for some family-friendly treats and tricks? Come haunt the Academy for the night and sleep over — just in time for the (not-so) spooky season.

The only skeletons here belong to the dinosaurs on display! Sleep next to roaring lions or stalking tigers. Trick or treat around the museum as you explore every corner, including The Big Dig and Outside In.

Enjoy a “Creature Feature” live animal show. Unleash your inner mad scientist with hands-on experiments. Keep your spirits up with delicious snacks, breakfast and coffee. Do the Monster Mash under the towering T.rex at the Halloween Dance-Off. Family-friendly costumes are permitted before bedtime, but make sure you have something comfy to wear after lights out!
