After-Hours Events | The Secret Society of Adultologists
Friday, September 29, 2017 7 PM

The San Diego Natural History Museum comes alive at night for an exclusive 21+ after-hours event, The Secret Society of Adultologists.

Most of us remember our first trip to a natural history museum—marveling at being surrounded by bizarre creatures large and small, appreciating the deep sense of history contained in a dinosaur skeleton, and admiring the idyllic images of Museum scientists from a previous era. The Secret Society of Adultologists has been designed to reinvigorate that initial sense of awe by throwing an after-hours 21+ event to remember. The entire Museum will be packed with activities giving party-goers a more intimate view of theNAT and an opportunity to see this cabinet of curiosity come to life.

Science, craft cocktails, music, storytelling, food, crafts, and art will all be components of this exclusive event. Museum scientists will share treasures from our collection of more than 8 million specimens. We’ll have crafting stations, art installations featuring amazing taxidermy, DJs, special access to a rooftop bar, live animal encounters, and games that will evoke your inner explorer. 

Tickets: $25 for non-members, $15 for members
