Slumber with the Stars



Make an Evening of it!


Upcoming Dates

Are you tired of traveling light years looking for something fun do to with your family? Slumber with the Stars brings the best of what Chabot has to offer into one exciting overnight adventure. Choose either a public themed event, or have the museum all to yourself during a private VIP evening.


Slumber with the Stars - Public

Each public overnight has a different theme that will allow you to learn more about the world around us, experience space and science, and participate in hands-on activities. To top off the evening you'll curl up in your sleeping bag amidst nebulae and galaxies. Just don't get too close to the black hole! Every event includes:

  • Access to Chabot's hands-on exhibits
  • A scavenger hunt & games
  • Shows in our state of the art, 70-foot dome planetarium
  • Private telescope viewing with a Chabot staff astronomer (weather permitting)
  • A souvenir gift
  • Snack and continental breakfast (dinner may be purchased in the café or plan to arrive having already eaten)

Additional activities are available based on the themed adventure for that evening. A complete list of upcoming dates and themed adventures can be found below.
