    California Academy of Sciences

    Talk about your all nighters. This one sounds both awesome and educational.

    The California Academy of Sciences is opening its door this Friday at 6 p.m. to children six and older for something they call "Penguins + Pajamas."  They have activities planned through Saturday morning, including a few hours shut eye.

    Here's what you get for your $119 ticket ($99 for members):

    • An overnight stay in African Hall or Steinhart Aquarium
    • Rainforests of the World exhibit until 8:00pm
    • Planetarium showing
    • Penguin Presentations and Q&A with a biologist
    • Late night snack and continental breakfast
    • Parting gift

    This is not an overnight daycare. Parents are supposed to accompany the kids.  The list of things to bring includes a sleeping bag and pillow.  It looks like you will sleeping on the floor, but you are welcome to bring a blow up pad if you want.

    If you can't swing it tomorrow night, the academy is also offering the overnight tour on July 16 and August 13.
