After-Dark Science Fun

Late-Night & Overnight Adventures

Join us for after-dark science fun at the Museum with your fellow Scouts. Along with the opportunity to have the Museum all to yourselves, every evening offers cool science activities.

 

Two options are available: stay for an overnight and sleep among the exhibits, or make it a late-night and stay until 11 p.m. then head for home to sleep in your own bed. No matter which you choose, it will be great fun with your friends.
