Carnegie Science Center
December 8
Check-in begins at 6 p.m.

Sleepovers are not just for your den or friend’s house anymore.

Imagine sleeping over amidst a far-out planetarium, laser shows and four floors of exhibits exploring everything from robots to space, bones and gravity?!

Experience all of this when Carnegie Science Center stays open all night for the holiday edition of its sleepover series. Grab your jammies and sleeping bags and head to the North Shore for a “Polar Express”-themed event open to kids of all ages.

Watch the 3D computer-animated Christmas musical fantasy film in the new Rangos Giant Cinema — the most technically advanced theater in Pittsburgh! Based on the iconic children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg, the film — which stars Tom Hanks — chronicles a boy’s adventure to the North Pole aboard a magical train. Experience the vivid images, vibrant colors and winter wonderland details like never before, thanks to the theater’s 4K laser digital projectors, 70-by-38-foot screen and 45-speaker surround sound system.

Participate in “Frozen Science” activities and jingle bell and candy experiments, and see planetarium, laser and theater shows like Stars Over Pittsburgh, Holiday Magic and Wheel of Science.

Enjoy snacks, slumber in a world-class museum and kick off Saturday with a continental breakfast.

To register, call 412-237-1637.
