Okay, GirlMoguls, I know you saw the movie A Night at the Museum. It’s Rose here, wondering if you ever thought of staying the night at a museum. Well, I have some super cool news for you! The Smithsonian (yes that museum in the sequel) is actually letting some kids and their parents do exactly that! They letting you in to sleep over at the museum, and see all of the crazy and awesome exhibits through the night!
I would totally love to do this. You get to experience history is a fun and completely new way. I think the movie must have inspired the people who run the museum, because it is a like the movie coming to real life, and like a dream come true. Basically, once a month, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History will host an overnight sleepover for kids and their chaperones. The chaperones have to over the age of 21, and you must pre-register by calling the museum. They have dates set up from January 2010, until April 2010 right now, so get calling! It’s an amazing opportunity for kids like us, so I suggest at least checking it out. You’ll be able to bring your own sleeping bags, and experience a night of fun. The program includes family workshops, performances, hands-on activities, and special screening on the Giant IMAX screen in the museum. You can also explore some museum exhibits, while meeting some fun characters along the way and having some good snacks. Don’t forget to check out the giant squid!
You can look up the details about the program here, on the Smithsonian website. This a really cool offer that won’t be around for long, so tell your parents about checking it out with you (I know I am!). One adult is required per group of 3 kids, and no siblings under the age of 8 can be admitted. Who knows? You just might be seeing me, GirlMogul Rose, walking around the Smithsonian one of these nights!
