After Dark: Build

Thursday, July 21, 2022 • 6:00–10:00 p.m. PT

Not a member yet? Join us and get free admission all year long!

Adults Only (18+)

Note: Free for members and donors—only a membership card and ID required for entry. The Tactile Dome is currently closed.

Tonight, meet us at the intersection of possibility and structure. Discover everyday materials transformed into artful oddities, awe-inspiring art, and unorthodox architectural experiments—then see how the tinkerer’s mentality inspires engineering feats in our local Bay Area landscape. Tinker, construct, and invent to your heart’s content!

Build is part of a series of adults-only summer programming inspired by The Art of Tinkering exhibition, open June 18 through September 5.


Food and drinks will be available to purchase and enjoy in our Seaglass Restaurant during After Dark. Please note that there is no drinking or eating allowed elsewhere in the museum at this time.
