Night at the Museum

Explore the Museum of Natural History after dark for an evening of pizza and STEM fun! Each month, explore a different area of science, technology, and culture with interactive demonstrations, fun activities, and hands-on materials. Each child receives an official MNH Miner Helmet with a head lamp to keep, and the group explores the darkened bird and mammal galleries as part of the evening’s activities. This is a drop off program, long enough for parents to have dinner or even go see a movie! 

For students in grades 1-5; $30 per student per program.

Programming this year will include 4 topics over 8 dates:

  • IT'S ALL IN YOUR GENES (Genetics & DNA) - September 7th & 14th
  • MAD SCIENCE (Chemistry) - October 5th & 12th
  • INSIDE THE HUMAN BODY (Biology) - November 2nd & 9th
  • IT'S ELECTRIC (Electricity) - December 7th & 14th

Pre-registration is required due to limited space but each program is offered twice per month to accommodate additional participants. Register today by visiting https://mnh.uiowa.edu/events/night-museum and using the in-text links.
