Nat at Night

Thursdays and Fridays this summer (May 30-August 30)

Kick off your weekends at The Nat this summer. We’ll be open until 10 PM on most Thursday and Fridays* from May 30-August 30 (and a few select dates in September), with half-price admission after 5 PM. As always, Explorer passholders and members of The Nat receive free general admission, and members receive a 10% discount on food and beverages. 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, including rooftop trivia on Thursdays. Our rooftop bar offers one of the best views in Balboa Park. It’s open to all visitors and serves beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks including kids’ beverages. Street tacos, ceviche, and poke are also available for purchase. Please note: access to the rooftop is available to museum visitors with paid admission, which supports the Museum's conservation and education programs.

We’re also offering special evening access to Escape The Nat, our natural history-themed escape room. Pricing is $30 per person ($20 for members and Explorers) and includes admission to the Museum.

*Closed Thursday, July 11 for private event. Dates and hours subject to change; always check this page for up-to-the-minute information.
