Royal B.C. Museum hosting after hours sleepover

The family adventure treats guests to a dance party in the forest diorama and a midnight tour into the depths of the museum

The Royal BC Museum family sleepover is perfect for any kid (or parent) wondering what the museum reveals once everybody else has gone home.

From Friday, Nov. 15 to Saturday, Nov. 16, the Royal B.C. Museum is featuring Night at the Museum: Old Town.

This after-hours family adventure will treat guests to a dance party in the forest diorama, a midnight tour into the depths of the museum, a late night Victorian story telling in Helmcken House, a cinematic family dress-up experience, a special IMAX screening, and a magic lantern show.

Families can choose their sleeping spot in different areas of the Modern History gallery. Set up their sleeping bags next to HMS Discovery and dream about stowing away on the next voyage. Wake up in the lush Old Town hotel, or with the call of an incoming train at the station. Then limber up with morning yoga in the First Peoples gallery and enjoy a tasty pancake breakfast.

Participants may also choose to spend the rest of their Saturday visiting other areas of the museum.

The night gets started at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 15. Tickets are $75 per person, available online or at the Royal BC Museum box office.

Night at the Museum: Old Town is a family event for kids aged six to 16 with their parents or guardians.

For more event details, please contact Chris O’Connor, at 250-387-2163 or coconnor@royalbcmuseum.bc.ca.
