Private overnights

Looking for a private group experience? Our private Overnights allow you and your group an exclusive experience at the museum: you pick the theme and your OMNIMAX® show. Private Overnights are available any day of the week. Having several alternate dates in mind will increase the probability that we can host your group. Private overnights must be booked at least 3 weeks in advance of the event date. All Overnight themes last from 7 p.m. to 10 a.m. Recommended for ages 6 to 12.

The fees for private overnights are a flat rate of $1,250 for up to 35 people. If you have more than 35 people, fees are $30 for each addition person. A $250 down payment is due at time of booking and will go toward your total payment. Final attendance numbers and payment are due two weeks prior to your overnight. If you need to add people onto your reservation within 13 days of your event, payment for those individuals is $35 per person and will be subject to availability.

Please note, private overnights will not be available until March 2019.


Starting January 2019, we'll offer programs for Girl Scouts (Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes and Seniors), Cub Scouts (Wolf Cubs, Bear Cubs and Webelos) and Boy Scouts.

All programs include private classroom demonstrations, discussions and exploration time in the museum.
