Will you get to see the exhibits come to life?
Have your little ones seen any of the Night at the Museum movies and wondered what it would really be like to spend a night at the museum? Then the South Australian Museum is giving 5 to 12 year olds the opportunity to join them for a pyjama party and spend an evening exploring the museum at night without the commitment of sleeping over.

An initiative to celebrate the upcoming Dinosaur rEvolution exhibition, little ones will enjoy a private viewing of the exhibition with a special scientist guide before enjoying dinner and a movie surrounded by ancient artefacts and heading home around 9 pm. The Pyjama Party will commence at 5 pm on Friday 23 February 2018. The cost to join in the party is $95 per child.

Are you really ready to sleepover though? For those a little older (8 14 years) , Saturday 24 February 2018 is their night to truly spend a night at the museum. From 5 pm, an unforgettable sleepover experience begins. You will explore the museum by torchlight; meet the giant squid suspended in the lift shaft, rub noses with sharks and feel the thrill of the ice wall in the Mawson Gallery. When it comes time for bed, you will get to bed down in your own personalised tepee in the Pacific Cultures Gallery. The cost to join the sleepover is $195 per child.
