Adults Only (18+)

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

Gear up for a night of cogs and contraptions, analog gadgets and Rube Goldberg chain reactions. Immerse yourself in a delightful array of mechanical objects, from whimsical windup toys to gears of all sorts. Check out an interactive shadow-puppet installation by Emmy Award–winning Manual Cinema, and experience a performative talk that reveals how they craft multimedia stories like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

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