Spend the night at Union Terminal!
Grab your sleeping bag and experience what USA Today called one of the country's top 10 museum overnights!
Each Overnight program includes educational programming, an evening snack, time to explore the Duke Energy Children’s Museum, breakfast, and access to the Duke Energy Children’s Museum the next day. All Overnight themes last from 7 p.m. to 10 a.m. Recommended for ages 6 to 12.
Groups of 35 to 100 can arrange their own Overnight at the Museum program. Overnights are only available for booking on Friday or Saturday evenings. Having several alternate dates in mind will increase the probability that we can host your group.
The fees are $30 per person. A $250 deposit is required to make a reservation and hold the date, with the full balance due two weeks before the scheduled overnight. Email Kristen Woods, our Public Education Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up your group today.
