Feeling adventurous? Sign up for the Sleepover at the National Archives on August 2 and explore some of history’s most exciting frontiers!
This summer’s sleepover theme is “Explorers Night,” allowing campers to journey to the Arctic, visit Outer Space, and discover the American West as they explore the National Archives Museum in a unique after-hours experience. Young explorers can chat with famous pioneers like Meriwether Lewis and Louise Arner Boyd and learn about life as an astronaut through artifacts straight from the National Air and Space Museum (like the “space toilet” and “living and working in space” discovery stations)!
Guests will be treated to movies in the museum’s William G. McGowan Theater before turning in for the night, and will enjoy a pancake breakfast flipped by our very own Archivist of the United States, David S. Ferriero in the morning.
Tickets are $125 per participant or $100 for Foundation members, NARA employees, and contractors. To register for the Sleepover at the National Archives. Learn more.
We hope to see you at the sleepover—and don’t forget to bring your sense of adventure!
