Way Late Play Dates

Crazy science fun for the 21+ crowd

Every few months, we open our doors after hours to adults only for unique fundraising events that combine science and your favorite pop culture franchises. From investigating Batman's incredible helmet to exploring what food might taste like in the apocalypse, no two events are the same! Enjoy the chance to let your inner kid out to play as you explore all the museum has to offer - from exciting hands-on exhibits and experiments to incredible planetarium features - all with an adult beverage in hand.

Upcoming Way Late Play Date:

October 3 - Classic Hollywood Horror

6:30 - 10 p.m.

Register now!

Join us October 3 for a celebration of the science behind your favorite classic Hollywood horror films! From Frankenstein's Lab to The Mummy's Curse, we will show you a SCARY good time.

Come enjoy science fun, beer, food trucks, improv in the planetarium, a costume contest and more! 

Our science spooks will include:

Frankenstein’s Lab  

Step into the lab and see what’s on the slab. Dr. Frankenstein has invited you to check out his specimens and to do some dissecting for yourself. Remember to always wear your goggles and gloves as you help the doctor find the right parts for his creation!

Horror Habitats

Help return the Swamp Thing and the Creature from the Black Lagoon back to their homes. Reach inside the Hazmat zone and feel the samples of each habitat to figure out which monster calls the sample home.


With this fun hands-on science activity, you’ll see your own shadowy orb take shape and float away into the ether. 

The Shock Station 

At the end of the hall, behind lock and key, some shocking science is afoot. Harness the power of nature to bend water to your will, send metal running scared, and send saucers soaring. 

Pepper’s Ghost 

Welcome foolish mortals to the haunted house. Look in the windows to catch a glimpse of the undead residents of this long forgotten home, brought to you by a classic optical illusion.

The Mummy’s Curse

Help our local excavation team find the mummy related artifacts in the sand but be warned - rumor has it, this tomb is cursed

Big Machine Vodka Member Lounge

Explore an Interactive Pumpkin Field by local artist Beth Reitmeyer, sample ghoulish snacks, and enjoy special drinks from Big Machine Vodka! To enjoy the member lounge, you must become a member of ASC.
