Is T. rex a Scaredy Cat?
Find out on Friday the 13th at the MPM Adult Sleepover with
Special Spooky Programming

Milwaukee – Get ready for a scare when you head to the Milwaukee Public Museum’s Adult Sleepover on Friday, March 13. Brave adults 21 and older will spend the night on the Museum floors and have the freedom to have their ideal museum evening -- kid-free -- with cocktails, tours, curator chats, an “adult” stargazing program in the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium, crafts and activities at the Camp Halcyon Campfire Lounge and exhibit-based programming. 

And for this very special Friday the 13th edition of the Adult Sleepover, guests will have the chance to:

  • Discover haunted MPM and hear ghost stories you’ll never forget
  • Take the MPM Exposed: Decline, Decay, & Death tour  
  • Bring a flashlight to the Third Floor and follow the clues under the cover of darkness (keep your flashlight nigh, lest you run into any ghosts nearby).

MPM’s Adult Sleepover begins at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, March 13 and ends at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 14. Tickets for the Sleepover are $125 per person and include admission and programming, food stations available throughout the evening, two drink tickets, a late-night snack and breakfast. Registration is required and ends Sunday, March 1.
