A Night at the Museum Sleepover at AMNH | Kids Out and About Hudson Valley

A Night at the Museum Sleepover at AMNH

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 03/06/2020
After the doors close and the lights dim, grab a flashlight and begin your journey—the nearly-empty halls of the Museum await. Snap a selfie with the mighty titanosaur, roam amongst our ancestors, or see exquisite creatures up close in a special live animal demonstration. The T. rex special exhibition will be open, along with screenings of a 3D film about volcanoes, and a Hayden Planetarium Space Show.

When your adventure is complete, drift off to sleep beneath the 94-foot-long blue whale, next to African elephants, or surrounded by striking models of our planet
