Sleep Under the Star(fish)

Presented by California Academy of Sciences

Why count sheep when you can count geckos, butterflies, fish and penguins? At a California Academy of Sciences’ Penguins+Pajamas sleepover, kids and families can spend a night at the museum enjoying one of the most adventurous sleepovers on earth!

As the only place in the world where you can explore an aquarium, planetarium, natural history museum, and four-story rainforest all under one living roof, sleepovers at the Academy are a one-of-a-kind way to experience one of San Francisco’s most family-friendly museums. Grab your pajamas and kick off your evening with special penguin talks, stargaze during an after-hours planetarium show, and chat with Academy scientists as they share their favorite scientific specimens. Explore all of the exhibits and see them in a whole new light!

Before bedtime, grab a snack of cookies and milk and settle in for “science story time.” When the lights go out, unroll a sleeping bag overlooking a colony of African penguins, next to the swaying kelp of the California Coast tank, or even at the Swamp window, face-to-face with Claude, the albino alligator. In the morning, it’s time to rise and shine, then head over to the Academy Café for breakfast before the sleepover event ends at 8:00 am.


Check out the upcoming dates on October 19th, and November 9th.
