I’ve heard about museum sleepovers but never quite understood what they were all about until recently reading an article from USA Today.
Museum sleepovers offer unique experiences which sound like a great way for kids to spend quality time with their parents and other important adults in their lives.
In the past when I’d hear about museum sleepovers, those silly Night At The Museum movies starring Ben Stiller came to mind.
According to USA Today “you can go on undercover spy missions, discover the science of igloos, meet live baby bears and beluga whales and take flashlight tours exhibits filled with fierce dinosaurs, huge walruses, mysterious mummies and more”.
Here are 10 Memorable Museum Sleepovers from USA Today:
- American Museum of Natural History- New York City
- Busch Gardens Tampa
- Carnegie Science Center- Pittsburgh
- Cincinnati Museum Center
- Field Museum- Chicago
- International Spy Museum- Washington, D.C.
- Milwaukee Public Museum
- National Aquarium- Baltimore
- Saint Louis Science Center
- SeaWorld San Diego
While these sleepovers sound like an amazing experience, the cost to take part can be pretty steep. Many of these experiences cost over $100 per person! I’d love to do one of these museum sleepovers with Lucas in a few years from now but at these prices, I’m not so sure that it would be worth it.
The Carnegie Center ($35 per person) and Cincinnati Museum ($28 per person) might be worth looking into when the time comes since we could always incorporate the museum sleepover into part of a quick trip!
What are your thoughts on museum sleepovers? If you’ve taken part in one, I’d especially love to hear about it.
