Sleeping over at the National Archives in Washington,D.C., is totally cool and now you could enter to win free tickets for you and the kids for the February sleepover.
The National Archives Foundation has launched a giveaway for free tickets for one adult and two children to attend the sleepover Feb. 6, 2016 — a $375 value. To register to win visit the National Archives website.
During the “History, Heroes and Treasures” sleepover, children ages 8-12 years old and their parents spend the night in the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom, the permanent home of the original Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights.
The February sleepover will highlight heroes in American history. It will feature numerous hands-on activities in the National Archives Museum during which participants will learn to become hero citizens before rolling out their sleeping bags to spend the night in the historic National Archives Rotunda. The next morning, visitors will have breakfast — including pancakes flipped by the Archivist of the United States — and participate in more activities.
Since 2014, the foundation has held five sold-out sleepovers. Tickets to the sleepover are $125 per person ($100 for Foundation members) and are available on the National Archives website. For more information and a video visit the website.
