Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Debuts New Family Sleepover Events

Overnights in the Museum are May 31, and June 21, 2019

Spend a night inside the Museum! Our family-friendly sleepovers offer a whole new way for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) to come to life. Go on an epic bug hunt on May 31; or travel back in time and go on an Antarctic expedition to dig up dinosaurs on the lost continent on June 21.

Sleepovers include access to Museum exhibits after-hours, 3D movies, themed crafts, activities, scavenger hunt, special performances, as well as an evening snack and continental breakfast the next day. Ask our knowledgeable Gallery Interpreters and Volunteers one-on-one questions about our exhibits and see special touch-specimens to match each theme.

Each sleepover event gives you complimentary Museum Admission passes to further explore the Museum the next day.

This exclusive overnight access to NHM is for children aged 5 – 12, and their adult chaperones (one chaperone is required for every four children). Participants will sleep in the North American Mammal Hall and the African Mammal Hall.
