5 Reasons to Sleep in a Museum: A 10-Year-Old’s Opinion

by Doug Baker | October 1, 2014

Hi.  I’m Doug, and I’m 10 years old.  My brother Charlie and I got to spend the night at the American Museum of Natural History.  My mom asked me whether the sleepover made the museum truly memorable. It did because the museum is a lot different at night than it is during the day. Here are five reasons why I remember my night at the museum so well:

AMNH dinosaur skeleton

1. You get to go around the museum with a flashlight.

2. There’s nobody blocking your view.

3. You get to have a scavenger hunt where you answer questions in a book.

4. You can see a lot more of the museum because it’s not crowded at night.

5. You get to sleep under a giant blue whale.

Those are the reasons why my night at the museum was truly memorable.
