Goodnight at the Museum

Goodnight - Sleepover at the MuseumBOOK NOW

Join us this National Science Week 2018 for a whacky and wild sleepover at Queensland Museum!

Bring your sleeping bag, pillows and excitement, and get ready to explore the entire Museum including hands-on activities, torchlight tours, pop-up shows and a family trail version of Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives exhibition.
