Survive the Museum - Overnight Experience

From: 07:00 PM to 08:00 AM, February 18, 2022 | Exploration Place

Ever wonder what it would be like to spend a night at the museum? Join us for an overnight adventure!

Are you ready? Are you prepared? Adventure awaits. Survival: The Exhibition transports guests to the world’s most awe-inspiring locales and asks the question: How can humans survive here? From the rain forest to the high mountains, from the extreme cold to the temperate forest, visitors will take on the elements and “camp out” at Exploration Place for an overnight adventure.

Come prepared with your overnight gear to sleep in the Where Kids Rule gallery, enjoy time in the new area Survival: The Exhibition, explore the full museum of exhibits and hands-on learning displays, participate in guided survival skill activities, tackle the Adventure Zone low ropes course, munch on tasty snacks and wrap up the evening with a dome show.

This event is best suited for children 8 years old and above. Each date will be limited to 50 attendees. [Event Tips & Info]
