OMSI After Dark: Stranger than (Science) Fiction

JUL 25, 2018 | 7-11 PM

Due to technical difficulties, our online ticketing system is not currently working. We still have plenty of tickets available but you will need to purchase at the door. Looking forward to a fun event!



When science leaches itself into the pool of imagination, what emerges is the world of science fiction at OMSI After Dark. 


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!
