By booking one of our unique overnight events, your group can have the entire Aquarium to yourselves, freeing you up to explore the exhibits with touch pool experiences, scavenger hunts, critter encounters, and more.

When it’s time to turn in for the night, participants will roll out their sleeping bags in designated areas throughout the aquarium, before drifting off among peaceful fish and the soothing sounds of rushing water. With a 7:00 a.m. wake-up call, participants will have just enough time to pack up their gear, enjoy a continental breakfast and work on a brief wrap-up activity before departing or continuing to explore the building.

At a cost of $40 per youth participant/$20 per adult chaperone (minimum cost of $700), rates are comparable to even the most modest of local accommodations.

Overnights are available on a limited basis during the months of September-April, and are not available during May-August.

There are lots of other ways for groups to play, learn and explore with us. Consider registering for one of our aquarium classes with your group.

Please contact Emily Wartman at 218-740-2000 or ewartman@glaquarium.org to request an overnight or to learn more.
