Register now for the next Archives Sleepover!
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 U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. The sleepover theme is “History, Heroes, and Treasures” and will feature hands-on activities to help kids become superhero citizens, learn the power and responsibility of government and its citizens, sleep in the Rotunda near the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and make memories to last a lifetime.
History, Heroes & Treasures is supported by the National Archives Foundation; John Hancock; Susan Gage Catering; and American Heritage® Chocolate. Chocolate history demonstrations led by Mars Chocolate History Ambassadors.
These events are open to children (recommended age: 8-12 years old), with at least one adult per group of four children. The sleepover starts in the evening on Saturday, through 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, before the Museum opens again to the public. Tickets are $125 per participant, or $100 for Foundation members. To join as a member and take advantage of this special pricing, add a donation of $60 or more in the box below.
