Bethel Woods Center for the Arts logoBe Among The Lucky Few to Sleepover Inside The Museum’s Main Exhibit On May 11th

Bethel, NY (May 1, 2018) –  The Museum at Bethel Woods will host A Night At The Museum, inviting families to enjoy an overnight experience in the immersive exhibit that brings to life the sights, sounds, and experiences of the 1960s.

On Friday, May 11, children – ages 6 through 13 accompanied by an adult – can explore The Museum’s main exhibit, hear the sounds of the infamous Woodstock festival, catch a screening of the musical film Sing, gather around the beanbags for story time, and then fall asleep under a groovy museum sky.

Past Night at the Museum participant Dorothy Grecco shared, “This was phenomenal. My son is still talking about it. He thought it was so cool to not only walk around the museum at night, but to bring a sleeping bag and sleep next to history.” Grecco continued, “This is one of the best things you have offered by far. We were able to take our time and truly enjoy and learn from the scavenger hunt. What a wonderful opportunity you've created for kids. It is a memory my son and I will always have, and I am so grateful to have been able to participate.”

A limited number of tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime experience are available. Tickets are $30.00 for adults (21+) and $20.00 for children, and can be purchased at bethelwoodscenter.org.
