Did you ever want to relive all the adventures that Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, Robin Williams, Dick Van Dyke, and legendary Mickey Rooney experienced in “A Night at the Museum”? Well, six participants of Goodwill’s Farragut Cornerstone program in Brooklyn got a chance to do just that on Friday, May 31. The mentees from the Young Male Initiative (YMI) and their mentors were invited to attend the overnight sleepover at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
The Goodwill group joined other kids from around the city. They arrived at 6 p.m. and went home the next morning at 8 a.m.
Staff from the museum held a reptile show with live snakes and turtles. This activity was a favorite among the kids, just like the scavenger hunt.
