    Some basic info about The Field Museum’s 2014 Dozin’ with the Dinos overnights

    What is the Dozin’ with the Dinos overnight program like? Bring your sleeping bag and explore one of the most exciting spots in town! Dozin’ with the Dinos is a unique opportunity for children ages 6-12 to spend the night at The Field Museum. Spend your evening enjoying workshop activities like games from around the world or live insects from your own backyard. Enjoy a snack break to fuel yourself for a self- guided tour of Inside Ancient Egypt – in the dark! (Make sure to bring your flashlight!) Before you know it you’re listening to bedtime stories in the shadow of SUE the t-rex and crawling into your sleeping bag in one of our wondrous exhibitions.

    When are Dozin’ with the Dinos overnights offered? Overnights begin Fridays at 5:45pm and end Saturdays at 9am. January 10 February 7 February 28 March 28 May 9 January 31 February 21 March 14 April 4* May 30 *Girl Scouts of GCNWI have reserved a bulk number of tickets for this date. Scouts can register via the Council.

    Who are Dozin’ with the Dinos overnights designed for? Dozin’ with the Dinos overnights are for children ages 6 to 12 and their chaperones. Individual families and groups can register for this event. Scouts, schools, churches, community groups and others are welcome at the overnight. Groups can range in size, but must always maintain a minimum 1:3 ratio of chaperones to children. Minimum group size is 15 (5 chaperones and 10 children); maximum group size is 200 (50 chaperones and 150 children). Chaperones must be at least 21 years old.

    What is the age requirement for Dozin’ with the Dinos overnights? It is required that children attending Dozin’ with the Dinos overnights are between the ages of 6 and 12. The activities offered are designed for children in this age range and children who are younger or older would not find them appropriate for their skills and/or interests. Children younger than 6 years are not allowed particularly because of the program timeline: programming runs until 11:30pm with a bedtime of 1:00am.

    How much does a Dozin’ with the Dinos overnight cost?  Group Rate: $55 per person. A group consists of 15 or more people. Groups with fewer than

    15 members must register as individuals.  Standard Overnight Rate: $63 per person ($55 for Field Museum members).  Premium Package tickets* are available for individual families. Due to limited space, Premium

    Package tickets are not available to groups and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Premium Package tickets ($75, $65 for members) allow guests to sleep in the Dinosaur Hall of Evolving Planet. Premium Packet With Tour tickets ($87, $77 for members) allow guests to sleep in the Dinosaur Hall and go on a behind-the-scenes tour with a Field Museum scientist.

    o Premium Package tours take place from 7:00pm to 7:45pm in place of the first portion of the Workshop time. Please note that the length and content of the tour make it a great option for children ages 9 through 12 who are interested in learning more about science at The Field Museum, but a tour may not be the best fit for younger children. Tours vary based on scientists’ availability – you’ll always see something cool, but it may be fossils, bird specimens, fish

    collections or another behind-the-scenes location at The Field Museum.

    Directions to The Field Museum PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: The #146 Inner Drive/Michigan Express (Museum Campus) bus transports riders from the Orange, Green, and Red line trains at the State Street and Roosevelt Road stations. This bus runs daily every 15 minutes into the late evening. For more information on Metra, CTA and Pace connections, schedules, and fares, call the RTA hotline at 312-836-7000 or visit www.rtachicago.com or www.transitchicago.com. DRIVING DIRECTIONS: The easiest route to the Museum Campus is via the 18th street and Lake Shore Drive entrance, immediately south of Soldier Field. Exit Lake Shore Drive onto eastbound 18th Street and follow 18th Street/Museum Campus Drive east of the stadium and north to the Museum Campus.

    PARKING: Parking for participants is included in the price of the overnight ticket. Parking is reserved in the North Garage – which is accessible via 18th Street. Overnight guests may access the North Garage starting at 5:00pm. On most days, participants can take a parking ticket from the machine and receive a validation ticket from overnight check-in staff. Occasionally the garage is on a cash-only pay-as-you-enter mode which means overnight guests will not get a parking ticket but will simply tell the garage staff person they are attending the overnight to get into the lot free of charge. No validation ticket will be needed to exit the garage on these days. All cars parking the garage must exit by 9am Saturday morning to avoid being towed. Please make sure to get a validation ticket from overnight staff during the event. Do not park in the East Lot – only the North Garage is reserved for overnight guests. THE MUSEUM WILL NOT REIMBURSE GUESTS WHO PRE-PAY FOR THEIR PARKING OR PAY FOR PARKING WITHOUT A VALIDATION TICKET.
