night at museum.jpgAn overnight at a museum? Action-packed with a Mt. Everest-like climb, mock snow, ice and rocks? At Barista Kids, we don’t normally cover stuff going on the other side of the Hudson, but we had to make an exception for this cool event.
Montclair Mom Anne-Marie Nolin is the Head of Communications at The Rubin Museum in New York City, and she’s helping plan the fourth annual night at the museum, called Peak Adventure: Himilayan Sleepover.
Montclair kid Rachel Rosenberg, a sixth grader, attended last year. “It was amazing,” she said. “The whole adventure seemed so real, and I made a lot of new friends. I met Luis Benitez and sherpas and a monk.” See Luis, a mountaineering expert, Rachel, her friend Sonia Abrams and another new buddy in the photo at left.

If only I were still 9. I did an overnight at a museum once, and I remember exactly how much fun I had. I also remember not sleeping at all, but sleep is over-rated anyway.
