Spend the Night with America’s Most Precious Treasures at the National Archives Sleepover

Sleepover at the National Archives Museum.

Looking for an entirely new way to visit Washington, D.C.? Spend the night next to America’s most precious treasures: the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights!

We previously shared 10 Sleepover Spots For Families in NYC & NJ, but there is another awesome sleepover adventure worth the trip to enjoy with your family in Washington, D.C. — the Sleepover at the National Archives Museum. Kid President did it and loved the experience.


Kids ages 8-12 along with their parents will become superhero citizens, meet heroes from history, 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. You’ll watch movies in the museum’s William G. McGowan Theater before turning in for the night, and enjoy  a pancake breakfast – flipped by Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero – and more activities the next morning.

Date: October 22, 2016 from 6:30 pm until 8:30 am Sunday, October 23, 2016 (there are additional dates in 2017, too).
Location: National Archives Museum, Washington, DC
Price: $125 per person, Register online, here.
