Sleepover at the National Archives
Have you ever wondered what happens in a museum after the building closes and the lights go out? Now’s your chance!
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.
During the fall sleepover, 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.
*Due to the government shutdown, we cancelled our sleepover for February 2-3. If you were registered for those dates and would like to move your registration to October or receive a full refund, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.*
