Spend a Night at the Museum

A photo from the 2013 event

Medical staff members and their families are invited to A Night at the Museum, a dinner and sleepover at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, on Friday, Feb. 28.

Eat dinner in the shadow of a Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton, and explore the most prolific trade route in history with a private tour through the museum's new exhibit "Traveling the Silk Road." Pack sleeping bags, blankets, pillows and air mattresses (no tents). Dinner, exhibits and entertainment are included, as is a continental breakfast.

Cost is $65 per adult and $45 per child under 12. The cost for those who don't spend the night is $50 per adult and $25 per child under 12. Parking is $10 per car.
