Nat at Night

Fridays this Summer (Friday, May 25-Friday, August 31)

Kick off your weekends at The Nat this summer. We’ll be open until 8 PM on Fridays from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend*, with half-price admission after 5 PM. As always, Explorer passholders and members of The Nat receive free general admission. Not a member? Join today.

The Museum is jam-packed with immersive exhibitions, incredible new 3D nature documentaries, and pop-up programming on select dates. New this year is a rooftop bar that offers one of the best views in the Park. It’s open to all visitors and will serve beer, wine, non-alcoholic drinks including kids’ beverages, and grab-and-go options.

These evenings are part of Friday Night Alive, where two fan favorite events come together for one terrific evening each week. Extended evening hours at select museums and Food Truck Friday combine for a rich night of live entertainment, evening hours at several popular museums, hands-on creative projects, and a rotating assortment of food truck cuisine. Learn more about all the activities happening this summer in Balboa Park.
