After Dark

See for Yourself

Every Thursday Night • 6:00–10:00 p.m. PT

Adults Only (18+)

Note: Free for members and donors—only membership card and ID are required for entry.

Let your curiosity roam free at After Dark in person! Beginning June 24 with a special night just for members, light up your brain with our Thursday-night programming for adults. 

Come see how our six spacious galleries have been reimagined for reopening, with thoughtful enhancements—guided by science—designed to spark your curiosity while keeping you and your loved ones safe. You’ll find a more spacious museum experience with hand-sanitizing stations throughout, masks required for all guests, and programs of wonder and delight intended for smaller groups. Grab a drink and reunite with friends in the outdoor gallery overlooking the Bay Bridge and the city skyline, and discover something new–including spaces devoted to stories of our shared human experiences from the past year.
