First Fridays

First Friday of every month

5–9pm
Spend a delightfully different evening on the First Friday of every month, except as noted below. Enjoy light fare plus beer and wine from the Acro Café, shop at the Museum Store, enjoy the Nature Art Gallery, groove to live music and stroll through fabulous exhibits. At 7pm, catch a free cult classic at The Natural Horror Picture Show.

For information, contact Jeff Williford at 919.707.9835.

Note: Due to the proximity to Independence Day, the Museum will not have any First Friday events on July 3.

The Museum (NRC and NEC) will close at 5pm as if it were a regular Friday. But join us next First Friday, August 7, for “The Gorgon” and a new artist in the Nature Art Gallery.
