Sleeping with Sharks in MD

Okay, I admit I’m not fond of the dark. I’ve never been fond of the dark. Things with big scary teeth live in the dark. The Calvert Marine Museum (CMM) proves this for all time by letting guests “sleep” beneath the jaws of a giant Megalodon Shark. That’s pretty much guaranteed to give me exciting dreams!

Designed for groups of 10 to 20 participants, a CMM overnight invites guests to experience the  museum after hours and behind the scenes. The adventure begins Saturday nights, when guests enjoy as pizza dinner, a special program, behind-the-scenes activities, a movie, and a continental breakfast. Admission to the museum is included, so you can tour the exhibits during normal visiting hours on Saturday prior to the 5:00 p.m. check-in. The overnight ends Sunday morning after breakfast.

Overnight adventures are a unique treat for special birthdays, scout troops, church youth groups, or anyone who is looking for a great way to build camaraderie while learning about the area’s cultural and natural history. Museum educators are happy to craft a program that best meets your group’s interests and needs. Girl Scout groups can even earn special interest badges.

To schedule a museum overnight, call 410-326-2042 ext. 41 to reserve your date. The Group Services Coordinator will work with you to ensure your overnight experience at the Calvert Marine Museum is exactly what you are looking for. There is a non-refundable $25 program fee due upon booking. For open dates and theme ideas, visit the website.
