Penn Museum's sleepover, 40 Winks with the Sphinx, invites guests to an overnight "expedition" of the Museum. The night's activities are geared to take intrepid explorers on a journey through time and across continents, with hands-on opportunities, through games and crafts, to explore ancient Egypt, the mummies and hieroglyphics, the ancient Greeks and Romans, the world of the ancient Maya, and more. An unforgettable experience for kids, ages 6 to 12, and their parents or chaperones!

This event is open to kids aged 6-12, and their chaperones only. 

A chaperone must be at least 21 years old. Teenage siblings do not qualify. Children under 6 years old are not allowed. No exceptions.
