Late Nights


When and Where

Our Virtual Late Night at the Museum events, held once per month on Wednesday evenings, will continue! Each Virtual Late Night consists of do-at-home arts & crafts, a trivia game, and a presentation by a guest speaker. Activities are related to the night's specific theme, which can range from a wide array of topics that fall under the categories of geology, anthropology, and paleontology. Late Nights events are designed to educate, as well as entertain, and can benefit children and adults alike.
