Bring your favorite dinosaur to Maryland Science Center to explore all things paleontology.

Use chemistry to hatch a dinosaur egg, create your own prehistoric name and hunt for real fossils to take home. Visit the Kid’s Room and The Shed before ending your night gazing at the stars in a live planetarium show.

Pajama Party is an evening event packed with hands-on learning designed for ages 8 and under, but older siblings can join in on the fun as well. The party has a sleepover theme without the overnight stay with multiple activity stations, a special planetarium show, and access to exhibits for exclusive nighttime exploration.

Who Can Attend?

The event was designed for children ages 8 and under, but older siblings can join in on the fun as well. All children must have a paid adult in their party.
