Royal B.C. Museum to host first adult sleepover in Victoria

Share ghost stories and explore the museum after hours

The Royal B.C. Museum is giving Victorians a chance to embrace their inner child and experience the nostalgia of summer with a grown up twist.

In August, the museum will open its doors for its first adult sleepover, where participants can share ghost stories around the campfire, create summer crafts and take a behind-the-scenes look at the museum by flashlight.

Night at the Museum runs happens Saturday, Aug. 26 starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $80 each and include a $10 voucher to on-site food trucks, live entertainment and breakfast the next morning. Grown-up drinks are also available for purchase.

The theme of adult summer camps continues throughout the month with the museum’s Friday day camps, where participants have the chance to venture behind the scenes, meet staff and experience hands-on activities.

Each of the three day camps has a different theme, including arts and crafts, Campfire (Hi)stories and Nature Merit Badge. The Grown-up Day Camps run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and cost $50 per person. For more information, visit royalbcmuseum.bc.ca.
