The Science Museum of Minnesota is hosting a 21-plus slumber party

You can sleep under a dinosaur.

Get ready to get your nerd on.

The Science Museum of Minnesota is hosting its first-ever adult slumber party next Friday, where people can explore the museum after hours and sleep under a dinosaur or next to a mummy (and in some other exhibits).

The St. Paul museum has hosted these camp-ins before as overnight learning experiences for kids, but this will be the first time a sleepover is 21-plus (because alcohol will be served), according to the museum's website.

The museum has done 21-plus social science events for the past five years and they've been pretty popular, and it "seemed like a fun idea to mix the two (the camp-ins) and try something new," Kim Ramsden, the director of communications and public relations for the museum, told GoMN.

Ramsden says they could have "several hundred attendees or more" at the event.

Tickets ($80 for members, $89 for non-members) are on sale now (buy them here), and include two drink tickets and access to a cash bar. With your ticket, you'll also get:

  • Two meals and a snack.
  • Entrance into the Mindbender Mansion exhibit, which features 40 hands-on brain teasers and five team puzzle challenges.
  • Watch one or two late-night Omnitheater film shows – either A Beautiful Planet or National Parks Adventure. 
  • Make and take workshops.
  • Science live demonstrations.
  • Reduced overnight parking.

The sleepover starts Friday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m., and goes until 8 a.m. the next day. Advance tickets end Oct. 25, but you'll be able to buy them at the door, too.
