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.

Life comes at you fast—but sometimes it's hard to observe, because it's too tiny or speedy or is hidden underground, or is deep in the ocean. Discover what you've been missing: use scientific tools to investigate living things of all different sizes, the ecosystems they inhabit, and the processes they share. Don't miss award-winning New York Times columnist and the author Carl Zimmer.
