Penn Museum's sleepover, 40 Winks with the Sphinx, invites guests to an overnight "expedition" of the Museum. The night's activities are geared to take intrepid explorers on a journey through time and across continents, with hands-on opportunities, through games and crafts, to explore ancient Egypt, the mummies and hieroglyphics, the ancient Greeks and Romans, the world of the ancient Maya, and more.
Penn Museum Members must log-in to receive their discount.
Everyone must bring a flashlight, sleeping bag, pillow, and if you like, a mat. You will be sleeping on the gallery floor. Camping pads, yoga or foam mats, and/or extra blankets are suggested. Inflatable air mattresses are not permitted. If you cannot sleep on the floor and/or have a back injury we do not recommend attending.
