If your family loves the "Night at the Museum" movie series, here's a chance to actually spend a night at a museum.

The Museum of Life and Science in Durham will hold a Family Sleepover from 5 p.m., Friday, March 6, to 10 a.m., Saturday, March 7. Kids 2 and under are free.

The evening includes activities, such as building a paper airplane, exploring the behaviors of nocturnal animals and building a tunnel or teepee as part of the museum's pop-up exhibit Build It! Forts, which runs March 3 to March 8. Games and crafts also will be available for visitors who like to stay up late.
