Three girls dance at a Sleepover at the Science Centre.

Experience the thrill of sleeping among the exhibits and experience the Science Centre after dark

We are not planning to resume sleepovers at this time. Sign up for our eNews to keep updated on what’s new at the Science Centre.

For over two decades, we have hosted sleepovers: fun-filled, action-packed nights of science after dark, spent on-site among our exhibits. Our sleepovers have taken visitors on a journey underwater, up to outer space, into laboratories and beyond.

Through a variety of engaging, interactive experiences, sleepover participants learn how to apply innovation and creativity to test critical thinking, identify solutions and collaborate with others. Young visitors will enjoy a fun-filled night away from home filled with immersive science activities that highlight the value of teamwork, problem-solving, critical thinking and effective communication.

Our energetic and enthusiastic recreation program staff will help sleepover participants explore a theme related to a film, exhibition or season. Your sleepover at the Science Centre is sure to be an unforgettable adventure!

Groups of any size are welcome at a sleepover. All groups or families must have at least one adult (19+ years old) and meet the required supervisory ratio of one adult to eight children.
