Kids and their chaperones can choose their adventure, whether it is sleeping beneath a 50-foot whale, spending the night at the home of the Star-Spangled Banner or among portraits of people who have shaped the nation. They will experience the museums in a whole new way during a night of fun that features tours, games, crafts and more.
