Night at the Museum

Come spend a night at the museum and see our dead things come alive!

Update: Our December Night at the Museum event was canceled due to inclement weather, but never fear! We will be back in 2023 with more Night at the Museums. Dates will be announced in January, but our first Night at the Museum of 2023 will take place in February. 


Our Night at the Museum events are held during the academic school year (September-May) and happen every few months. Night at the Museum gives community members the chance to get up close and personal with the museum specimens and learn about the world around them! Each Night at the Museum has a special theme and is entirely put on by our incredible undergraduate museum docents. 

See what other events are happening in the museum!
