Family Night at the Museum

Share |


The first Saturday of most months presents a whole new way to explore the Museum. Each Family Night offers something new to see and do. It could be a family-friendly film or maybe a live performance. Then there might be a scavenger hunt through the Museum or  hands-on activities to engage the entire family. One thing is for sure - it'll be fun and educational!

Family Night Details:

  • The Museum is open until 8:00 p.m. and admission is half price after 3:00 p.m!
  • Most Family Nights include a Live Star Talk and/or a Space Show in the Bishop Planetarium, check individual dates for more information.
  • The Rock Hall of Fame Planetarium show runs from 8:15 to 9:00 p.m.
  • Museum Friends Members are always free for Family Night and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
