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

We are looking into our options to resuming Smithsonian Sleepovers for the summer of 2022. If you have not already, sign up for our email blasts and you will be the first to know the dates when they are released. We look forward to welcoming you to a night at the museum soon!

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?
