At the California Academy of Sciences They Let You Sleep under the Star(fish)

Get ready for the wildest sleepover ever! Experience your own night at the museum with family-friendly Penguins+Pajamas sleepovers at the California Academy of Sciences. Explore the exhibits after hours and discover the deepest depths of the oceans, travel to the tops of rainforests, blast off into outer space at your own private planetarium show, and then settle in for story time after snacking on milk and cookies. When the lights go out, roll out your sleeping bag next to the swaying kelp of the California Coast tank or even at the Swamp window, face-to-face with Claude the albino alligator. In the morning, rise and shine, then head over to the Academy Café for breakfast.
