Event Information

Why count sheep when you could count geckos, butterflies, sharks and panguines? Camp out for a night at the Academy, and you will see the museum in a whole new light. Listen to the evening songs of the rainforest birds and sing “twinkle twinkle” to a sea star at the Discovery Tidepool. Then head over to African Hall to interact with a Penguin specialist and become a stargazing guru during an after-hours planetarium show. Before bedtime, settle in for story time while snacking on cookies and milk and learn about Pierre — the Academy’s famous wetsuit-wearing penguin. When the lights go out, unroll your sleeping bag in African Hall, next to the swaying kelp of the California Coast tank, or even at the Swamp window, face-to-face with Claude, the albino alligator. In the morning, rise and shine, then head over to the Academy Café for a continental breakfast.Penguins+Pajamas is a program for children between the ages of 5 and 17. All children between the ages of 5 and 17 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone who is 25 years or older. There must be one adult chaperone for every group of up to 5 children, and adults cannot attend unless there is a child in their party.
