Lose yourself in over 650 interactive exhibits exploring perception, art, and science at our adults-only After Dark. Grab your friends and a drink and get immersed in mind-bending experiences and unique, thought-provoking programs.

If we are what we eat, what will we be in the future? From plant-based proteins to food-delivery systems to the integration of robotics and technology in food production-and even serving-the landscape of what and how we eat is changing rapidly. Explore what’s new in our diets and go deep at Pairings: Hacking Food.
