(Looking to visit as a group during our regular hours? See our Onsite Programs and Group Visits page for info.)
Group OvernightsYou and your group will participate in a number of activities presented by our educators, have a late night snack and set up camp anywhere among our three floors of exhibits!
Overnights can be reserved any Saturday night (book early for best availability).
They begin at 5:30pm and run until 9am the following morning.
After-Hours WorkshopsFor children who are interested in attending a Museum & Theatre program after hours but who are not quite ready for an overnight, we offer evening workshops.
Evening workshops can be reserved any evening of the week (book early for best availability).
The cost of an overnight is $26 per child and $14 per adult, with a minimum fee of $625.
Evening workshops are $12 per child and $4 per adult, with a minimum fee of $370.
To start the reservation process, contact Shana at 207-828-1234 x227 or .
For overnights and workshops, we require a minimum of 25 children (or a minimum fee of $625) and can accomodate no more than 60 children. We require one adult chaperone for every five children. (Some exceptions can be made; contact us to inquire.) If this isn't the right fit for your group's size, consider a group visit with a guided program during regular hours, or seeing a theatre production as a group.
Children and chaperones will have assigned sleeping areas within our exhibits, including the fire truck, space shuttle and Discovery Woods. Small groups may be permitted to choose their own sleeping areas.
Participants supply their own evening snack. (No nuts, please!) A breakfast is served the following morning which includes cereal, fruit and juice. Please make notation on medical forms if a child has specific dietary needs.
There will be time in the morning to shop for Museum souvenirs.
Decisions to cancel due to inclement weather will be made by the Museum & Theatre the day of the scheduled event. Museum staff will call the Troop or Pack contact that scheduled the event and notify them of cancellations. Deposits for weather-related cancellations will be credited toward a re-scheduled event. The Museum & Theatre reserves the right to cancel a workshop or overnight in the event registration does not meet minimum enrollment up to two weeks prior to the event. If cancelled, we will do our best to re-schedule or a full refund will be issued. If the reserving group cancels the reservation with less than two weeks' notice, the $100 deposit will not be refunded.
