Discover what is science and what is fiction at a special paranormal and sci-fi-themed 21+ after hours event. Inspired by popular series likeStranger Things and The X-Files, this After Dark will explore the oddities of the natural history museum and mysterious specimens from our collections. Use walkie talkies on a scavenger hunt throughout the museum. Come dressed up to enter a Stranger Things costume competition, or play some Dungeons and Dragons. Mega Cat Studios will be on-site with some original 1980s-style video games that you can play on vintage game consoles.
Dissect Demogorgon-like creatures, and enter a different dimension with an “upside down” experience in the Carnegie Music Hall Foyer. Snap a picture with some “government employees” in hazmat suits, and catch a classic 1980s movie on the big screen in the Earth Theater. Enjoy a waffle bar, drinks, dancing, hands-on activities, and more at a supernatural night of mystery.
Please note that no weapons (fake or otherwise), masks, or backpacks are allowed. (Face paint is permitted.)
