Event Information

Flashlights at the ready! Pith helmets optional; sleeping bags recommended! Penn Museum offers a sleepover experience like none other: 40 Winks with the Sphinx. The night's activities are geared to take intrepid explorers on a journey through time and across continents, with hands on opportunities, through games and crafts, to explore ancient Egypt, the mummies and hieroglyphics, the ancient Greeks and Romans, the world of the ancient Maya, and so much more. A scavenger hunt and an evening expedition through the galleries by flashlight offer new ways to connect with the ancient artifacts awaiting discovery.Later in the night, explorers roll out their sleeping bags-to doze at the foot of the third largest granite Sphinx in the world, by the 3,200-year-old pillars from the great palace of the Pharoah Merneptah, son of Ramesses II. 40 Winks with the Sphinx concludes with a continental breakfast in the children's lunchroom, time to explore the galleries by day and visit the children's gift shop.
