It hadn’t occurred to anyone that sleeping out in a Museum could be a thing until the Ben Stiller film about just that turned on every preteenage NYC kid to the adventure of it all. Now a number of NYC Museum’s offer this opportunity several nights each year. And other places have got in on the act, so Now there’s a number of interesting sleepover opportunities available to children of all ages, including grown up ones.
It’s a pretty good thing to have on your life CV, ‘I slept overnight at the Bronx Zoo’. Indicative prices are given but obviously subject to change and this isn’t a regular event with any of the venues. If it’s something you’d like to do then ring the relevant institution and find out when sleepover nights will be and get yourself on the wait list or least find out when you have to go online to book. These are very popular events when they are held.
