Why should the kids have all the fun?
The incredibly popular "Night at the Museum" program at the American Museum of Natural History, though aimed at kids, is T-Rex-sized fun for the adults too. But the museum has decided the adults need a night all their own, complete with champagne and jazz.
Sleeping arrangements are still cots under the giant blue whale in the Hall of Ocean Life room though, so don't get any ideas once the lights go out.
The grown-up version of the museum sleepover does have, aside from the sleeping arrangements, some similarities to the kids' version. There's still the opportunity to roam the near-empty halls of the museum and see the Spiders Alive exhibit, for example.
What's different? The aforementioned champagne reception and music by the 12th Night Jazz trio. There will be no bedtime story, but instead a midnight showing of Dark Universe. There's also a three-course dinner provided (dinner at the family version is purchased at the cafeteria).
An interesting note: no pajama allowed at this sleepover. Again, don't get any ideas. The museum simply prefers guests to wear "comfortable sleeping clothes" instead.
The first adult sleepover takes place Aug. 1. Cost of the evening is $375 per person and guests must be 21 or older.
