Just as the doors are closing, the lights dim, and the crowds shuffle out...

...a night of adventure awaits you as you enter the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.

Go on an interactive exploration of the museum and participate in hands-on crafts projects. Then roll out your sleeping bag and dream away in the darkened halls of one of the world’s most famous museums!

Activities include:

  • Participants enjoy games, puzzles, and challenges as they embark on an interactive journey through the museum’s exhibit halls, where they also find inspiration for their own art and craft projects.
  • Exhibit-based craft projects.

Terms and conditions: By registering for this program, you are agreeing to the program rules; to have at least one adult present for every three children; and to submit a signed release form for each person in your group. Please note that only children ages 10 to 14 are allowed to attend.
