TEMPUR® partners with the Science Museum

In a new collaboration, premium mattress brand, TEMPUR®, has become an official Astronights sponsor, supporting the Science Museum’s 2024 sleepover programme. 

Astronights sleepovers allow children to explore the Science Museum after dark and take part in hands-on workshops, shows and activities. 

In addition to financial sponsorship, which helps ensure that the Astronights programme can continue to grow and provide meaningful experiences, TEMPUR® will be gifting a TEMPUR® Comfort Travel Pillow to every attendee and providing mattresses to enhance the sleepover for select guests booking the VIP overnight experience.  

Excluding two special editions – the SEN and Girl Guides Astronights in August and October respectively – TEMPUR® will be sponsoring all Astronight events throughout 2024, with the first kicking off the programme this Friday, 19 January. 

The stars have aligned for this exclusive partnership. TEMPUR®’ Material was born from technology first developed by NASA and used on board the space shuttles and it is thanks to this astronautic heritage that the mattress brand shares a common goal with the Science Museum; to celebrate all things science, innovation and space technology related. As original offshoots of space-led research and innovation, the pillows and mattresses will help Astronights campers fully immerse themselves in the experience, whilst also ensuring a good night’s sleep.   

TEMPUR® Material has a historic connection to space technology,” says TEMPUR® UK Managing Director, Tobin James, “and our products help to provide the necessary support and comfort to ensure a quality night’s sleep, making this partnership doubly meaningful.  

“The Science Museum does such an important job of making science accessible and engaging millions of people every year and we’re thrilled to be supporting that mission, whilst also positively impacting the sleep experience for Astonights visitors throughout 2024.”  

Laura Southall, Head of Learning at the Science Museum, said: “A fun night at the museum awaits at Astronights, with interactive science shows, engaging hands-on workshops and the chance to sleep in our incredible galleries. We have welcomed families, schools and organised groups to Astronights for more than two decades, helping inspire futures, and I’m delighted this will continue thanks to generous support from TEMPUR®, whose values align with our own mission to excite the public with stories of science and technology that underpin their everyday lives.”
