Spend a magical night at Maryland Science Center’s Academy of Wizardry.

Create your own wand and compete in our Triwizard challenges. Track down the house ghosts and dissect owl pellets in the Owlery. While you explore, keep an eye out for hidden keys so that you can learn how to transform one into a winged key to take home.

Super Science Sleepovers are packed with hands-on learning paired with an unforgettable overnight at the science center. This event is perfect for families, friends, parties and special occasions. Each sleepover has a theme with multiple activity stations, a special planetarium show, an IMAX documentary, and access to exhibits for exclusive nighttime exploration. Then, when it’s ready for lights out—say goodnight to the dinosaurs and sleep in the exhibit halls.

Who Can Attend?

Children must be age 5+ and all children must have an adult in their party.
