Overnight Programs

Enjoy an evening under the stars with an Overnight Adventure! The program includes guided exhibit exploration, hands-on activities, planetarium show, evening snack, and visit to the observatory featuring telescope viewing (weather permitting).

You can also add-on a Magnet Painting (hands free painting using magnets) or Planes and 'copters (whirlybirds & paper airplanes) activity to your Overnight Adventure program for $20!

Check-in time is 6 PM; check-out time is 9:30 AM. Enjoy a light breakfast in the morning and visit the Science Store. Everyone receives a special Overnight Adventure patch!

Most Overnight Adventures are scheduled from Saturday night to Sunday morning. We also have some Friday night to Saturday morning availability, and other days may be available upon request.

Overnights are great for Scout Groups; school class trips and other youth and adult groups are also welcome.

Cost is $50 per person, with one free adult leader. At least 45 participants or a minimum payment of $2,250 for smaller groups is required to run the program.
