Now that the Field Museum’s Stanley Field Hall is officially home to the largest dinosaur ever discovered, Màximo, they’ve announced a seriously nostalgia-inducing way to show it off. Beginning at 6 pm on July 7th, guests who are 21 and over are invited to bring along their sleeping bags and PJs for a whole night full of adventure.

Explore the halls of the museum – sans the kiddos and the usual crowd – with this special, after-hours showcase. Visit favorite exhibits like MummiesAntarctic Dinosaurs, and Máximo the Titanosaur alongside presentations from museum scientists, mind-blowing science projects, stargazing, and even some late night bocce ball. Plus, rumor has it that sleepover guests might even have a chance to get an after-hours peak of Sue’s new home at the Evolving Planet Exhibition.

Tickets for the exclusive event cost $80 and include dinner, a midnight snack, and breakfast. Oh, and there’ll be a cash bar, of course.

Honestly, we question anyone who thinks this doesn’t sound fun.
