Spend the Night at HMNS

Spend A Night at the Museum!

Find out what happens at the Museum after the sun goes down! After a fun-filled evening of hands-on activities, overnighters enjoy a Planetarium show before settling down to sleep among the exhibits.


Customize your Overnight by choosing from different activity topics, optional presentations and more to create your own unforgettable Overnight adventure!

Who can participate in an Overnight?

Children ages 6-12 and adult chaperones. We ask that the ratio of adults be at least 1 adult for every 10 children with a minimum of two adults regardless of group size. This is a great opportunity for a special class field trip or a scout group outing. Overnight events are not available for groups of adults.
