Due to the ever-changing nature of restrictions due to COVID-19, we have suspended the Night in the Museum overnight program for the fall and winter of 2021. Please check this page regularly for updates about future evening programming for Scouts.  In the meantime, please consider joining us for our new program, Night in the Museum:  Evening Investigation. Learn more below!

Night in the Museum:  Evening Investigation is a shortened version of our popular Night in the Museum program that does not include an overnight stay. It is an experience designed for Scouts, schools, and other youth groups of up to 80 participants.

Start the evening with a hot catered dinner before traveling back in time for a candlelit adventure through the 1830s.  The quest will exercise their detective skills as they hunt for clues, conduct experiments and investigate the past.  Back at Investigation Headquarters, we will experiment with historic crafts to learn more about 19th-century life.  The evening concludes with a mission debrief and a snack before you head home.

Pre-registration is required; see below for details.
