A night of adventure awaits at the National Archives! Join us for a special sleepover at the National Archives Museum in Washington, DC, and spend the night next to America’s most precious treasures: the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

During this space-themed sleepover, intrepid explorers will learn about the mysteries of space travel; dive into our nation’s treasured records, including historic NASA files; explore the museum with a scavenger hunt; sleep in the Rotunda near the Declaration of Independence and Constitution; and make memories to last a lifetime.

Guests also will be treated to movies in the museum’s William G. McGowan Theater before turning in for the night, and will enjoy breakfast—including pancakes flipped by Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero!—and more activities the next morning.
