National Museum of American History Sleepovers for ages 8-14
Participants will solve a mystery of historic proportions during an interactive exploration of exhibit halls. When the devious diva Miss Rose steals six valuable objects from the museum, kids must discover what is missing before the evening’s end. Using their detective skills, they will collect clues to guide them to the crime scene. Along the way, they will take part in games, experiments and craft projects—and even become a presidential candidate. Sleepovers at the National Museum of American History will be held May 24, June 15 and July 5.
National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar Hazy Center Sleepovers for ages 8-14
Kids and their chaperones will explore the whole world of flight, from its pioneering days through the era of commercial aviation to the excitement of today’s space program. After they grab a flight checklist, they will take off for a night that includes plenty of games, art activities and close-up looks at some of the most historic and fascinating craft ever to take to the skies. Udvar-Hazy Center staff will be on hand to offer information and insights about the aviation treasures on view. Sleepovers at the Udvar-Hazy Center will be held May 18, July 13 and Aug. 17.
National Portrait Gallery for ages 10-14
Sleepover participants will discover the stories of poets and presidents, visionaries and villains, actors and activists whose portraits fill the museum’s walls. Inspired by a variety of visual art mediums, games and an immersive guided journey through the museum, sleepover guests create their own portfolios and display their work in a one-night-only gallery exhibition. A sleepover at the National Portrait Gallery will be held Aug. 23.
Please Note: There must be at least ONE adult chaperone, age 21 or older, for every three children in any group that registers (and that adult must purchase admission and register as well).
