Museum After Dark

Museum after Dark and After Dark Soiree 2015 enchanted over 900 guests with elegance and intrigue at Mystery at the Museum. Guests were transported back to the 19th century for an evening of playful sleuthing, fine dining and delightful entertainment. Guests stepped into Victorian London in The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes as they worked to tackle a baffling new case.

Thank you to all who contributed to the event. Your support ensures that every child in our community has access to world-class science opportunities through scholarships, onsite classes, labs and tours. One-hundred percent of the funds raised will provide educational programs that seek to inspire young minds to think, learn, and grow through science.

On behalf of the Museum’s Board of Trustees, our entire staff, and the extended Museum family, we thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you at Museum After Dark 2016.
