Smithsonian Sleepovers Header Image
A night of adventure awaits you and your family at a Smithsonian museum.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Smithsonian Sleepovers for a night of fun, immersive museum activities and exploration. All of our summer Sleepovers 2020 are taking place as scheduled. Tickets are still available and can be purchased online. If you have any questions, please call our friendly customer service staff at 202-633-3030 (M-F; 9-5). See you this summer!

Imagine rolling out your sleeping bag beneath a 50-foot whale, at the home of the Star-Spangled Banner, in the shadow of the space shuttle Discovery, or near the portraits of presidents and visionaries. That’s exactly what kids and their grown-up companions can do when they attend a Smithsonian Sleepover. The American History Museum, Natural History Museum, the Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center, and the National Portrait Gallery are all yours during a night of fun that features tours, games, crafts, and more. Which adventure will you choose?
