Adults Only (18+)

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

Illuminate the connections between art and science during a night devoted to shadow and light. Manipulate objects to cast entrancing images in the Light Lab. Wander through exhibits that gleam, glow, dazzle, and flash (capture your image on phosphor-impregnated vinyl in Shadow Box!), and be transported by a premiere shadow-play performance from Facing West Shadows. After Dark, it’s time to shine!

Shine 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.
