“NightLife” is a weekly themed educational event at the Academy of Sciences where you can explore activities and hands-on exhibits throughout the evening, for an interactive and memorable date night. Nightlife happens every Thursday night, from 6-10pm. Themes vary each week and are designed to explore the natural sciences in multi-disciplinary ways. Throughout the evening there is some sort of live music to accompany the activity.

The planetarium also offers something of its own during an evening of NightLife. To access the planetarium, you have to pick up a pass from a kiosk onsite (first come first serve) but the price is included in general admission. All of the exploring that happens at NightLife means you will work up an appetite, and the Academy offers a variety of choices in the form of cafés and bars spread throughout the building.

General admission to NightLife is $10-12  per person. For groups of double dates and special occasions, there are group and VIP options available.  Purchase your tickets for NightLife online and bring cash for the food and bars.
