Explore the museum after hours by combining a badge workshop with a sleepover at The Museum! A minimum of 30 scouts is required to run, and you may combine groups to meet your minimum.
Includes an evening snack, breakfast, an "I Slept at the Museum" patch and a Planetarium show. (While all badge requirements are completed, badges are NOT included). Sleepovers can be scheduled Friday evening to Saturday morning or Saturday evening to Sunday morning, depending on Museum availability. Times run from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.
Adventures in Science Sleepover
See a planetarium show, construct a working flashlight you can take home, and learn about the scientific method as you complete this badge all about science.
Art Explosion Adventure Sleepover
Visit our art galleries then learn to draw a self-portrait. Plus use our arboretum to create out-door art and learn more about working with clay as you make your own air-dry bowl.
Earth Rocks Adventure Sleepover
Did you know that the Museum has over 8,000 minerals? Use our collection as you test for hardness, learn about rock identification, and more! Plus see some amazing specimens put on display just for you!
Engineer Adventure Sleepover
Learn all about engineering design, planning, and construction in this hands-on workshop. Learn about simple machines, basic mechanics and more! Put what you learn to use as you design things that move and race your very own rubber band car.
Into the Woods Adventure Sleepover
Our 25 acre arboretum is a great place to study trees! See a tree “cookie” to earn about growth rings, visit a gingko tree and learn why it is a living fossil, and learn what Cyprus Knees are. Plus you will leave with your very own plant to take care of! Best completed during the warmer months.
