SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — The Savannah History Museum is giving behind-the-scenes access so you can have the adventure of a lifetime this weekend — a true “Night at the Museum.”
Visitors who attend the event on Saturday, Jan. 25, will undergo rigorous training as an honorary nightguard to unlock the magical ability to bring the exhibits to life.
“We’re able to bring the mannequins and we’re able to bring inanimate objects to life and it’s so fun to be asleep until people approach and then to snap to,” Aaron Bradford said, who portrays a British Revolutionary Soldier. “And just the reaction on the children’s faces is priceless.”
