One Event to Rule Them All
Gather up your Fellowship, it’s time for an Adult Night — our very own Social in the Shire! The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences becomes Middle Earth on February 24. Lay siege to Gondor, dance with dragons and show off your Tolkien trivia at this exclusive, 21+ 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).
Social in the Shire general admission is sold out! Don’t miss out on the fun: There are a limited number of Catalyst Member tickets still available. See below!

COSTUME AND MASK POLICY
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.
