National Archives Sleepover
  • Date: Saturday, February 01, 2020 - Sunday, February 02, 2020
  • Time: 6:30 pm
  • Location: National Archives Museum

A night of adventure awaits at the National Archives! Join us for a special sleepover at the National Archives Museum in Washington, DC, and spend the night next to America’s most precious treasures: the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

Explorers will dive into our nation’s treasured records; explore the museum with a scavenger hunt; sleep in the Rotunda near the Declaration of Independence and Constitution; and make memories to last a lifetime.

Guests also will be treated to movies in the museum’s William G. McGowan Theater before turning in for the night, and will enjoy breakfast – including pancakes flipped by Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero! – and more activities the next morning. The event is recommended for children 8-12 years old; chaperones must be 21+ (adults must be accompanied by a child).

Made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation with the generous support of John Hancock.
