Sleepovers are very popular with Young Friends.
Enjoy a monumental night’s sleep at the Museum in 2017.
Sleepovers are a thrilling way for Young Friends to experience the Museum after dark and learn about thousands of years of history through craft workshops, participatory activities and storytelling.
The first sleepovers of 2017 will be all about the forthcoming
exhibition The American Dream: pop to the
present and the history of the United States of
Listen to Native American legends, send your own space rocket to the moon and explore America during the Gold Rush. You'll get to spend the night sleeping in the Egyptian and Assyrian galleries surrounded by kings and gods, and swing, twist and breakdance your way through American history. You will also all get the chance to visit the amazing new exhibition in the morning before the Museum opens to the public.
