Museum overnight programs have sprung up across the country, offering kids a chance to roll out their sleeping bags beneath some of the most iconic and beloved museum displays in the nation. But why should kids have all the fun? For the first time, San Francisco’s California Academy of Sciences is hosting an adults-only sleepover on June 4.

Adults ages 21 and up can spend the night in the museum, which includes an aquarium, natural history museum, planetarium, and a living roof. An upgraded ticket adds a four-course meal from The Moss Room restaurant. Geeky fun abounds: Play a 4-foot-tall Jenga game, get a sneak peek at the gem and mineral collection, catch a movie in the planetarium or stargaze on the roof before rolling out your sleeping bag and crashing for the night in the African Hall, Aquarium, Lower Swamp or Islands of Evolution exhibit. On Sunday, participants will enjoy breakfast and a full day’s admission to the Academy, including the summer Snakes & Lizards exhibit.

Admission for non-members is  $119 for the sleepover or $199 for the sleepover and a four-course dinner in The Moss Room.
