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.

Leave your common sense at the door and indulge in a night of nonsense. In celebration of the opening of our exhibition Curious Contraptions, join us for a gathering of artists and makers who specialize in the whimsical, the foolish, and the absurd-including two performances by Maywa Denki, foremost purveyors of nonsense machines. Get ready to get illogical!.
