Sleepovers at the Fleet

Have you ever wanted to spend an adventurous night in a museum?

You can have the opportunity to explore mind-boggling illusions, the science behind how human cells are formed, the importance of water conservation and more in our eight interactive exhibit galleries. You will also get to attend two fun, educational workshops, participate in a scavenger hunt, and view an IMAX movie in the Heikoff Giant Dome Theater.

This is the perfect opportunity for you and your organization to have an amazing night of fun, with the added bonus of learning about science and the world around you.

Your night of fun includes:

  • Fleet Science Center admission and exploration of our hands-on, do touch interactive exhibit galleries that provide a unique, self-guided learning experience for all ages
  • An IMAX® show in the world's first Giant Dome Theater. Come nose-to-nose with wild animals, plunge deep into the ocean to swim with sea creatures or blast into space to discover new galaxies!
  • Two fun, hands-on educational workshops
  • A scavenger hunt in the science center
  • Music and dancing
