Looking for the perfect adventure for your youth group or Christian school? Try a sleepover at the Creation Museum! Take a flashlight tour of the exhibits—and watch out for dinosaurs! 2019 programs are booking now. Request your reservation soon.Request Reservation
Overnights are available Sunday through Friday evenings, January to November. Bookings must be at least two months in advance.
After closing for the day and turning the lights down low, the Creation Museum’s hundreds of exhibits are yours to explore at your own pace—from the Garden of Eden to the Dinosaur Den.
Head off on a scavenger hunt, then settle in for some entertaining and educational videos, and grab a bedtime snack before lights-out at midnight.
Roll out your mats and sleeping bags in the darkened halls, and settle in for the night. Girls and boys sleep separately in different exhibit areas.
All Creation Museum tickets are valid for two consecutive days, so you can tour the museum the day of your arrival before your overnight adventure. This is a great option for groups that need to leave early the next morning.
If do tour the museum the day of your arrival, you’ll pick up your General Admission tickets from the front desk. Explore the Creation Museum and Botanical Gardens, then be sure to leave the property by 6:00 p.m. when the museum closes (a great time to go eat dinner). At 7:30 p.m. you can return and start your overnight adventure! During the second day of your visit, you’re free to continue touring the museum.
Please mention this two-day option when discussing your schedule with the overnight coordinator if you want to take advantage of this opportunity.
After breakfast in Noah’s Café, pick your favorite seats for a private showing in the high-tech Stargazer’s Planetarium. Afterward, you’re free to tour the museum during regular operating hours on day two.
