2018: Night Sky Explorers
Calling all explorers! What do YOU see when you look up at the night sky? How do we explore far-off places? Explore our Solar System—and beyond—at an Astro-Overnight! Designed for families with kids ages 6-12, Astro-Overnights are a great way to experience the museum after-hours, and with new, hands-on programming, special sky shows, and the chance to spend the night under the stars or in an exhibit next to a planet (or spacecraft). There’s something for the whole family to enjoy!

Want to enjoy the evening, but can’t spend the night? No worries. There is an evening-only option available. Enjoy the same program, but sleep in your own bed.
