A night at the museum -- this time for adults

Having recently cleaned its big blue whale, the American Museum of Natural History in New York is ready to welcome adult visitors for its first 21-and-over sleepover Aug. 1.

The museum has hosted sleepovers for children during which the young visitors were allowed to roam the galleries after public hours. The adult sleepover -- which is already sold out -- is limited to 150 guests, with admission at $375 per person, and will include a three-course dinner, entertainment and a breakfast snack.

Visitors are expected to bring their own sleeping bags and comfortable clothes for sleeping; no pajamas are allowed. The museum said that guests will be able to sleep under its 21,000-pound fiberglass model of a female blue whale, which the museum recently cleaned -- a process that it streamed online

The museum continues to host kid sleepovers throughout the year for ages 6 to 13, with special nights for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.
