Due to the overwhelming popularity of our monthly After Dark events, we've expanded our Thursday evening programs. We're now open every Thursday night to adults 18 and over; each week we offer a different program to stimulate your senses and expand your mind. Delicious nibbles and outrageous bay views are available at the SeaGlass restaurant, and cash bars offer libations of all kinds. Come for the cocktails, stay for the exhibits, and indulge in endless exploration.
Each Thursday night program brings you something completely unique—special exhibits, guest lectures, provocative films, and more. Check the calendar below for details.
Calendar of Events
Not a theater, cabaret, or gallery, After Dark contains aspects of all three. Each evening showcases a different topic—from music to sex to electricity— but all include a cash bar and film screenings, plus an opportunity to play with our hundreds of hands-on exhibits.
