Snack – check; Sleeping bag – check; Dinosaur – check?

After about age 6 kids get over the fear of monsters under the bed, so it’s about time you let them sleep with monsters over the bed.

Bring your sleeping bags to the Field Museum for “Dozin’ With The Dinos” and you and your kids can sleep with Sue, their prized T Rex. Get a premium package and sleep in the Evolving Planet hall, and pay a little more to get a behind-the-scenes tour.

The evening includes workshops, tours and performances and they provide a snack. You can see what to bring and the schedule in their Overnight Toolkit.


These evenings tend to sell out very quickly, so be sure to get your tickets soon. Children must be between the ages of 6 and 12, and no matter how childlike you are, adults can’t come alone.
