23 More Amazing Museums Where You Can Sleep Next to History

Illustration for article titled 23 More Amazing Museums Where You Can Sleep Next to History

Well, wowza. On Friday, we posted about museums that host sleepovers. And it turned out that you had a ton of great suggestions to add to the list, filling Kinja with amazing anecdotes and tips. We've compiled them here.

Lots of folks had fond memories of a night at a museum, either recently or as a kid; but everyone seemed to have had a great time. If you're considering giving one of these a go, however, I received an emphatic pro-tip from someone who spent a memorable NYE at the Monterey Aquarium: Bring an air mattress.

A sleepover at the Mütter Museum (home of the world's largest megacolon) sounds like a great recipe for nightmares. Yikes!
