Grand Rapids Public Museum Announces

2015 Night at Your Museum Event


Grand Rapids, MI – See your favorite characters come to life at the Night at Your Museum event hosted by the Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) on Sunday, December 27 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Night at Your Museum is held annually at the GRPM, and is based on the popular 2006, 2009 and 2014 movies.


Using a souvenir flashlight and honorary security guard badge upon admittance to the dimly-lit museum, visitors become part of the drama that unfolds as characters from the Museum’s exhibits come to life.  Medieval knights will duel with swords, Native Americans will perform ceremonial dances in full regalia and Civil War soldiers will reenact skirmishes. Guests can take a ride on the 1928 Spillman Carousel, catch a Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Organ concert and see a planetarium show in the newly renovated Chaffee Planetarium.


Advance purchase of tickets is strongly suggested as the event sells out each year. Tickets are on now. The cost is $20 per person for the program. All proceeds from the event benefit the programs and exhibitions at the GRPM. For additional information or to purchase tickets, please visit
