The closest we'll ever get to experiencing the magic of Night at the Museum is going to an after-hours museum party. Even an adult science night leaves you wanting more, which is why one local museum is pulling out all the stops. This party at one Charlotte science museum carries over in the wee hours of the morning. 

Long gone are the petrifying days of high school biology and chemistry, so science is actually way more interesting now. At Discovery Place, science and booze are combined during the most epic sleepover. 

This 21 and up Science on the Rocks event is meant to celebrate the museum's new Antarctic Dinosaurs exhibit, which is opening February 8.

Ticket holders get an after-hours look at everything Antarctica related. You'll get an undisturbed experience since there won't be any children running around. 

Once you soak up as much information as possible, you can partake in the plethora of activities. Whether that's singing karaoke to the top of your lungs, playing air hockey, or doing a science experiment, you'll undoubtedly be up until the crack of dawn. 

Each ticket includes one drink at the full bar, but bring some more cash if you're looking for a tipsier experience. 

Once the munchies hit, you'll have plenty to snack on, including chicken tenders, fries, pizza and Meditteranean salads. A hot continental breakfast is also provided. 

Once the fun winds down, you'll be assigned a sleeping area (fingers crossed for the aquarium). The event is meant to be more intimate than the typical Science on the Rocks night, so expect to divide and conquer the museum alongside 200 adults. 

Tickets are $105 and for an unforgettable experience like this, best believe you won't forget it.
