Overnight Adventures

Your Overnight Adventure Is Waiting For You!

McWane Science Center offers Overnight Adventures year-round for School Groups, Scout Troops (both boys and girls), Church Groups, and more. As the lights dim, you and your group will head out in search of adventure. Climb the stairs and you’re face-to-face with a real dinosaur! Set up camp next to your favorite exhibit.

Enjoy an evening filled with hands-on learning in the exhibit halls, larger-than-life experiences in the IMAX® Dome Theater and educational programs tailored to fit your group, including badge programs for Scout Troops.

Let us help you customize an overnight adventure for your group! For more information or to schedule an Overnight Adventure, call (205) 714-8489.
