“‘Family Sleepovers’ let parents share with their children a deeper, more immersive Aquarium experience than is available during a typical visit,” said Aquarium spokesman Dave Sigworth. “Plus, it’s a more memorable, more personal experience because we cap capacity at 100 participants, and those 100 people have the whole Aquarium to themselves.”

After check-in at 6 p.m. and a tasty dinner, Aquarium educators fill the evening with a fun- and fact-filled behind-the-scenes tour, an IMAX® movie, snacks and more.

“Lights out” is at 10:30 p.m. Participants sleep in sleeping bags (BYOSB) throughout the Aquarium galleries. Air mattresses are allowed for adults.

Breakfast the next morning is at 8:30 a.m., followed by a private seal show. Participants will be on their way home by 9:45 a.m. on the 7th.

Advance registration is required. Space is limited to 100 participants and expected to fill up fast. Tickets are $90 for adults and $80 for children 5-12 ($75 and $65 for Aquarium members).
