OMSI After Dark: Winter Ale Fest

FEB. 26, 2020 | 6-10 PM

Warm up with these winter ales and learn the science behind brewing. Hop to it!


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!


21+ Only | ID's Required
