Science by Night

Apr 24

Stay overnight in the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago!

The April Snoozeum has been cancelled. Keep those sleeping bags on standby for future dates. More info

Enjoy a rare chance to explore the Museum after everyone else has gone home.

Explore the Museum's one-of-a-kind exhibits at your own pace. Participate in special activities, make your own science toys, and complete a scavenger hunt. When it's all done, sleep nose-to-nose with a 727, next to a giant heart or steps away from a toy-making factory. It's all part of the Snoozeum!
