Dozing with the Dinos!

The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science Camp- In!
Join us for a night of exploration, adventure and fun!


Want to provide a unique and memorable experience to your students or organization that they are sure to never forget! The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science offers just that! The Camp-In program offers an exciting hands-on educational experience for children ages 6 through 12 years old. As the doors close and the lights dim, a Certified APS teacher will lead your group through the museum in search of a variety of adventures and educational activities. In addition you can choose to see one of the spectacular large format films showing in the Lockheed Martin DynaTheater or a spectacular show in the Planetarium. As the night comes to a magical close, groups can settle down beneath Stan the 12 foot T-Rex or snore with giant mammoths and saber-tooth cats in the Ice Age exhibit or enjoy sleeping in many of the other darkened exhibit halls!What is Included
