The event also features several one-of-a-kind silent auction packages inspired by the Museum’s art and play-based mission.  Stay tuned as we finalize these amazing packages and plan to bid! We’ll be making bidding available a week or two before the event, just in case you want to get a jump on things.

Night at the Museum This popular event gives 10 children (and at least one parent) an exclusive “after hours” party/sleepover at the Museum! Kids will explore the Museum’s art installations and create their own art in a private artist-led workshop, enjoy dinner in The Wonder Sound and dessert in the Rain House!!  We’ll wrap up the evening by cozying up in sleeping bags and watching a movie in one of the galleries.  Facilitators, snacks, dinner, dessert and breakfast provided by the Museum.

Big City Art Experiences New this year, we’re offering one-of-a-kind art experiences in some of our favorite cities across the U.S. Packages include airfare for two, hotel accommodations for two nights and dinner.  Every package will be a little different, – but all packages include an art experience money just can’t buy.  We’re lining up artists to take you on a private tour of their studio, curators to take you on a “behind the scenes” tour of an art museum and/or tickets to the theater with a backstage pass. Stay tuned as these packages get more detail.  Cities include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York and our own backyard San Diego.
