Science Sleepovers!

Science After Dark

Join Carnegie Science Center in Science After Dark, an Astronomical Adventure. Explore the night sky in the Buhl Planetarium and visit SpacePlace to experience what it would be like to be an astronaut. Design a space rover and then put it to the test. Help a forgetful astronaut find personal belongings in our "Lost in Space" scavenger hunt. You might get to snooze next to R2-D2 or catch some Z's near a space station. This is one spectacular, starry night!

Cost: $35 per person. Call 412.237.1637 to register.

Check-in begins at 6 pm the evening of your sleepover, where you will receive a detailed schedule of the night's happenings. The overnight experience will begin with a brief orientation, after which participants will enjoy a night of themed activities. Lights-out is at midnight. All sleepover gear must be removed from the building by 9:30 am, but you are welcome to stay the day after and explore even more with your general admission, included in your sleepover cost!


Fee for all sleepovers is $35 per person. Groups need to provide one adult chaperone for every eight children. Families or those not part of a group must also have a parent or guardian present.


A Sleepover T-shirt is the best souvenir to remember your special night at the Science Center. They will be on sale in the XPLOR Store the morning after your overnight experience.
