For those of you who had to put in a full work week…
…we salute you.
This weekend hitlist is hereby officially dedicated to all of you…
Sleepover at the Smithsonian
National Museum of Natural History
For those of you looking for some awesome kid-friendly events this weekend, you’ll be excited to know that there’s a ton.This event is full of all kinds of games and fun activities such as an interactive exploration of the museum, games and hands-on crafts and projects.
The event is for children ages 8 to 12 years old. Children must be accompanied by an adult (at least one for every three children). You’re going to want to bring sleeping bags and probably eat a nice dinner beforehand since dinner will not be served.
The museum however, will be serving snacks during orientation from 7:30PM – 8PM. From 8PM to 11PM interactive tours and activities will begin and from 11PM-11:30PM attendees will get ready to for bedtime under Phoenix the whale in Ocean Hall.
After a full 8hrs, guests wake up to breakfast at 7:30AM and get access to the family store before heading out.
Can’t attend this one? You’ll be excited to find that there’s a couple more sessions left before school starts. No kids? Sorry folks — no entry without a munchkin, so if you’re dying to go you better grab up your nearest nephew/niece!
For more info on what to bring visit the Smithsonian website.
Registration can be done online or at the ticket window prior to the event.

This brand-new interactive installation has been getting a ton of online buzz and coming to the District arranged as part of the Summer Block Party series.
The creators behind this 3D printed landscape are a NY design firm by the name of Snarkitecture comprised of artist Daniel Arsham and architects Alex Mustonen and Ben Porto.
This immersive exhibit features a massive all-white model complete with furniture, a back yard, garden and picket fence for guests to roam through and explore.
Guests can pre-register for certain blocks of time on date available, but may want to get the process taken care of ahead of time as we checked the website to find that many of the times were already sold out.
