Unlike Ben Stiller’s character Larry in the ‘Night At The Museum’ movies, we probably will never be lucky enough to see every artefact and model at a museum come to life. But museums around the world are offering the next best thing for history and nature enthusiasts by hosting sleepovers. Yes, you heard that right! All these museums are giving you an opportunity to have the best, most educational sleepover ever. Don’t miss out!
