A Spook-tacular Overnight Safari at The Academy of Natural Sciences!

It's Philadelphia's Creepiest Camp-In!

October 26th-27th
Sleep over in the murky and mysterious museum next to Mesozoic monsters, a mummy, and marvelous mammals.

Here's some of the many Weird and Wonderful Things Planned:

Creatures of the Night
Nocturnal animals prowl and growl for your pleasure at this special Halloween Live Animal Show.

Eating Habits of the Prehistoric Dead
There's something lurking the Academy and it's been dead for millions of years! Join Dino Dude in a discourse on the prehistoric menu: Herbivores, Omnivores and Carnivores, Oh My!

Spooky Specimens
The mad scientists of the Academy of Un-Natural Sciences will delight ghoulish guests with the best of the beastly, bloodless and batty specimens in the collections. Look forward to seeing the skeletons, skins and skulls that fill the deep dark recesses of the Academy’s collections.

Things to do in the Dark
Watch mouths glow with a strange blue light and faces disappear into the ether as you learn the ways of night vision. Giggly games and terrific tricks make this the most fun you’ll have in the dark!

Screamingly Scary Shirts
Make your own scary, spooky or surprising shirt design and bring it home to show your friends!
