Adult Nights: Nocturnal by Nature

Adult Nights are back!

Nocturnal by Nature | Activities | Food & Drink

Come to the Museum’s spookiest Adult Night of the year, “Nocturnal by Nature!” Dance among dinosaurs, meet some Museum creepy-crawlies face to face and check out rarely seen Museum “oddities” at this premiere event. Enjoy a unique opportunity to experience the Museum at night while exploring the uncensored side of science. The event features interactive science stations, music, games, local entertainment and special activities. Beer, wine, themed cocktails and food will be available for purchase. Costumes encouraged (but not required)!

Tickets: $20, $15 Members; $25 at the Door. Not a member yet? Join today!

For the safety of all visitors, we ask that guests wearing masks or items that obscure their face remove those items during the check-in process. After checking in, guests are welcome to wear those items in the event. Costumes should not contain any elements that resemble, or could easily be mistaken for, an actual weapon. The Museum reserves the right to turn away any guest with a costume that we deem offensive or unsafe.
