Adults-Only Night at Discovery Center Oct. 25
Release your inner child and experience Discovery Center’s fantastic exhibits — without the kids — from 6 to 10 p.m., Friday, Oct. 25, for “Spooky After Dark.”
Break out those Halloween costumes and enjoy a night of Halloween fun. Carve a pumpkin, make some slime and enjoy “dead” science demonstrations given by deceased Nobel laureates you vaguely remember from school. Explore an outdoor park in the dark if you dare! You can even check out the museum’s new temporary exhibit,
“Build It! Make It!”
