OMSI After Dark: Medieval Science

JAN 23, 2019 | 6-10 PM

How does jousting work? Is chainmail really a good defense? Find out as modern scientists explore medieval sciences.  

 

Shoot off water rockets, concoct chemical creations, and explore the wonders of OMSI with no kids in sight! Enjoy a glass of wine while learning about robots, tornados, or fossils. Talk to a brewer about the science behind beer, or sample products from local artisans.

 

All that and more with OMSI After Dark, a night at the museum for the 21-and-over crowd filled with food, drink, and science fun!
