A Swedish museum just unveiled a huge indoor forest where visitors can camp “out” overnight. The photography museum Fotografiska Stockholm is giving guests the chance to enjoy an early taste of spring by booking a stay in their Fotografiska ForRest Room (a.k.a. their “forest room”).

The room was created as part of the museum’s “In Bloom” exhibit, which explores ways in which humans are dependent on nature as a source of both energy and inspiration via the work of 16 photographers.

According to its official description, the Fotografiska ForRest Room is “filled with lush vegetation, offering visitors the chance to experience the peace and serenity of nature.”

“We are constantly seeking new and exciting ways to enhance our guests’ experience in our building,” Elin Frendberg, executive director at Fotografiska Stockholm, told The Independent. “We aim to make it fun and magical to spend your time here, and it is thrilling to offer an overnight stay for the first time. This spring, nature will be the focal point at Forografiska Stockholm, and we are eagerly anticipating the addition of a lush indoor forest.

But if you want to spend the night there, you’ll have to act fast. The forest room can be booked for an overnight stay on three exclusive dates: February 28, March 1, and March 2. The stay — which costs SEK 2,500 (roughly $240) per night — also includes a five-course dinner, breakfast, and admission to “In Bloom” and other Fotografiska Stockholm exhibits.

While guests won’t literally be sleeping under the stars, their reservation still pays it forward for real-life forest preservation. All proceeds from the ForRest Room will be donated to Naturavet, an organization dedicated to preserving Swedish forests.

Although the hotel room is only available for three overnight stays, it will remain open daily for visitors to enjoy until April.
