Night at the Museum

Once again, the Science Spectrum & OMNI Theater has set out to disprove the traditional stereotype of museums as boring and elitist vaults full of information, and show us that they are, in fact, exciting places full of wonder, entertainment and the possibility of adventure. This Friday, the Night at the Museum is sure to do just that!

Join the Science Spectrum after the museum closes for a night of mysterious and exciting family fun from Friday, July 26 through Saturday, July 27. You will have the opportunity to visit the museum while it’s still light, and then, the real adventure will begin.


To kick off the fun, you and your family will be privy to an exclusive screening of the film “Night at the Museum,” along with your own personal popcorn and drink. This Hollywood blockbuster will have you channeling your own inner Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) as you discover what actually happens at a museum when the lights go out.

With the lights dimmed, you and your family will get to explore the Science Spectrum and see the exhibits come to life right before your eyes! Your imagination can run wild when have the chance to finally visit with an astronaut while in flight, meet the pilots of the famous biplanes, compare dunking skills with professional basketball players, discuss physics with Newton and chat about your dental plans with the giant teeth downstairs. The possibilities are endless!


This year, the Science Spectrum is offering two ticketing options for the event. You may choose between overnight camping and event-only admission options. The adventurous family can escape the summer heat and stay after the event to camp out at the museum! Families will have the same traditional camping fun indoors with a bedtime story, milk and cookies, breakfast and additional exclusive exploring privileges on Saturday morning. Those families who are unable to stay over night can still attend with event-only admission on Friday!

Tap into your adventurous side and come enjoy a night of fun and excitement with your family this weekend. Tickets are limited, so register now to ensure you won’t miss out!
