Storybook Pajama Party

Storybook Pajama Parties

Meet characters from your favorite stories.

The fun doesn't end at 5:00 pm. Storybook Pajama Parties promote literacy and positive family interaction in a fun environment that celebrates learning. Come in your PJs and listen to a favorite story.

What to expect: Families can enjoy an evening at the museum and a compelling reading of the tale in front of a large screen showing the pages in the book for all to see. After the story, the reading is brought to life when children meet the storybook character (don't forget to bring your camera). Hands-on themed activities for children of every age take place all evening throughout the museum. An end-of-night musical parade featuring the storybook character concludes our fun-filled evening.

Early-bird registration: Members $10/person, Non-members $15/person

Regular registration: Members $12/person, Non-members $17/person

Space is limited, registration required. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.
