SIP & SCIENCE
This one's for the "big kids," a.k.a, adults, age 21 and up. Like playing with robots? Competing in trivia while playing on a room-sized iPad? Taking a peak at crazy cool animals? Sip & Science gives adults the chance to play after hours in the museum while enjoying beer, a specialty cocktail, and food. Fun knows no age limit!

Get Lost Under the Stars
Grab your drink and join us for a trip back into the Viking Age, where the gods were fearsome, the stories were funny, and the mead was strong. You'll learn how the nine realms of Norse Mythology were created, and the ways that Loki caused trouble for Odin, Freya, Thor and the other gods of Asgard. We'll take a tour of the planets that these gods were associated with, and explain why each planet is connected to a different day of the week. The show will end with a dazzling display of Norse Constellations, and an explanation as to why bad poetry exists.
Enjoy beer, wine, appetizers, and plenty of space (both socially distant and universe wise). That's right, you get to eat, drink, and relax while enjoying legends and trivia under the stars…so we hope you like Norsing around because planetarium shows about mythology are Loki the best.
Check in a little early for each show to play with some of our out-of-this-world space activity stations from the NISE Network. Space is limited to 15 guests in the planetarium at a time, and masks must be worn when not eating and drinking. Shows run from 6:00-7:00 p.m. and 7:30-8:30 p.m. The planetarium will be sanitized between shows for guest safety as well. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. for the 6:00 p.m. show and 7:15 p.m. for the 7:30 show.
Our Planetarium is an inflatable dome. Guests sit on cushions on the floor of the planetarium to view the show. Due to social distancing guidelines, space is limited. Purchase tickets lunar rather than later to reserve your space. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled showing to check in, grab your drinks and apps, and get settled.
