"While the American Museum of Natural History has been hosting Night at the Museum sleepovers for kids, there’s never been an adult-only one. Ever. Until now. They’ve just announced their first sleepover for grown-ups, which will take place on Friday, August 1st.” - Gothamist
Amenities will include some of the following:
"Explorers can roam through the nearly empty halls of the Museum (including the spiders). There will also be a flashlight tour.”
"Participants will be invited to attend a special presentation in The Power of Poison exhibition with Curator Mark Siddall."
"There will be a midnight viewing of the Dark Universe Space Show, narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson."
"There will also be charging stations and tea service."
