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.

April 25 - 6:30 - 10 p.m - Fantasy Fiction (Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, etc.)  - purchase tickets here! >

  • Level 3 Fireball: Cast your best d20 and hold a fireball in your own hands!
  • Trebuchet Avec Moi: Build a catapult and pit it against its medieval competition, the trebuchet.
