Overnight Adventures

Spend a night at the museum, and discover SCI after dark!

Experience the Science Center of Iowa after hours! Explore exhibits, see live science demonstrations and participate in hands-on challenges. When it's time to snooze, roll out your sleeping bag and dream away in the darkened halls of SCI.

Overnight Adventures are recommended for groups and families with children ages 6 to 12. One chaperone is required for every six children.

Cost: $36 per child, $18 per adult (includes overnight admission, a light evening snack, hot breakfast and admission to SCI for Saturday)
