Overnight Adventures

Spend a night at the museum, and discover SCI after dark!

Experience the Science Center of Iowa after hours! Explore exhibits, see live science demonstrations and catch a larger-than-life IMAX film. When it's time to snooze, roll out your sleeping bag and dream away in the darkened halls of SCI.

Overnight Adventures include:

  • Two private live science programs
  • One documentary IMAX film
  • A light snack in the evening
  • Time to explore SCI after dark
  • Hot breakfast
  • Free passes to stay the next day and explore SCI
  • OPTIONAL: Pizza dinner can be purchased for $6 per person but must be eaten before 6:15 pm.
