You know you've always wanted to see if the dinosaurs really come alive at night. Now's your chance!

Attend one of the American Museum of Natural History's Sleepovers for Grown-ups to explore the famed museum all night long. Not only will you get to sleep under the giant blue whale in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, you'll go on guided tours to check out the mummies and more; see a live animal presentation (hawks, snakes and lizards, oh my!); be mesmerized by a 1am screening of Dark Universe in the planetarium narrated by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson; and have free reign to keep checking up on those dino fossils till 7am. Plus, you'll start off the night with a champagne toast, then head to a buffet dinner with beer and wine accompanied by live jazz music. 

Available dates are August 11, October 13 and December 9. The price tag of $300 may be a little steep, but this really is an only-in-New-York experience. Get your tickets now as they tend to sell out!
