Museum Sleepover

Young visitors touring the Museum at night.

Who knew the coolest place in town on a Saturday night would be a dark museum? Only the very coolest parents and the very coolest museum, that's who. The San Diego Air & Space Museum hosted A Night at the Museum on Saturday, September 26th - and a great time was had by all.

This family event packed in hours of fun, including a flashlight tour of the galleries, period re-enactors who brought our aircraft and spacecraft to life, snacks, glow-in-the-dark paper airplanes, and a movie.

After all that, parents shepherded their tired children to selected spots in the galleries to sleep under the aircraft. Morning activities -- a basement tour, snack and simulator ride -- capped off the unique event. To stay tuned for more events like this during the upcoming year, please contact the Education Department and ask to be placed on our family events e-list.
