ROM Sleepover: Ancient Civilizations (December)

ROM Sleepovers: Experience the Museum in the dark!


Experience the ultimate backstage museum pass at the ROM. Start the night off right with a special movie screening. Bring ancient empires back to life as you enjoy exclusive, after-hours access to the Galleries of Greece, Rome, Byzantium, Nubia and Egypt. Speak to experts, get up close to ancient artifacts, write your name in hieroglyphs, and make a creation inspired by the ancient world. Then bunk down for a giant sleepover (after PJ karaoke and a late night snack of course) and let your dreams take you to the ancient world of Pharaohs, Caesars, Emperors and Kings.

Sleepovers are for children 5 years and up. Children are required to be accompanied by an adult (19 years or older) throughout the sleepover. We require a supervision ratio of one adult (19+) to 5 children.

Sleepovers include admission to the ROM for the evening and following day of your event. Groups of any size are welcome. Groups of 10 or more are $67.50 per person.

ROM Sleepovers begin Friday at 5 pm and end Saturday at 10 am.


On Saturday morning, Ancient Civilizations sleepover participants are invited to a sneak preview of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (97 mins.)
The movie starts at 10 AM at the Varsity Theatre located in the Manulife Centre at the corner of Bloor and Bay Streets, about 4 blocks east of the Museum.
