Exploratorium: After Dark

An evening series exclusively for adults that mixes cocktails, conversation, and playful, innovative science and art events. Come for the cocktails, stay for the exhibits, and indulge in endless exploration.

  • Dramatic views from the Observatory Terrace.
  • Enjoy signature cocktails, beer and wine.
  • Engage with over 600 interactive exhibits.
  • From small-scale to museum-wide experiences.
  • Weekly performances and artist installations.

We're now open every Thursday night to adults 18 and over; each week we offer a different program to stimulate your senses and expand your mind. And all night long, delicious nibbles and outrageous bay views are available at the SeaGlass restaurant and cash bars offer libations of all kinds. Leave the kids at home and meet friends or take a date. Where else can you find an intellectually stimulating playground for adults?

Note: A ticket to Thursday evening adult-only hours does not guarantee admission to special programs with limited seating. Tickets for limited-capacity programs will be made available to visitors on a first-come, first-served basis.
