Nocturnal by Nature

Thursday, October 27, 2016

Some say that on cool nights in late October, when the moon is just right, you can catch a glimpse of the Museum’s whale skeleton “Stumpy” floating down the Museum halls…

What do you think? Are the stories true? There’s only one way to find out: come to the Museum’s spookiest Adult Night of the year, “Nocturnal by Nature!” Dance in the globe, meet some Museum creepy-crawlies face to face, and check out rarely-seen Museum “oddities” like a two-headed cat at this premiere event.
