Almost Overnights

Explore the Science Center of Iowa after hours - and then sleep in your own bed!

An Almost Overnight offers many of the same experiences of a full Overnight Adventure, but at the end of the event, you get to go home and sleep in the comfort of your own bed.

Almost Overnight Adventures include:

  • One private live science program
  • Time to explore SCI after dark
  • One planetarium show

Pizza dinner and/or IMAX tickets can be purchased for an additional cost.
