Night at the Museum provides an engaging evening of science exploration for children to enjoy. “It’s a kid’s dream to run around a science museum after hours! Night at the museum is an evening full of pizza, fun, climbing, digging, and tinkering. It also gives parents a chance to go out without having to find a babysitter,” says Cory Van Auken, marketing manager at AMOS.

Participants are invited to take on the Hall of Minerals Scavenger Hunt, fly through the cosmos in the AMOS Interactive Panorama, climb through the canopy in the Appalachian Forest, dig for dinosaur bones in the Fossil Dig and explore topography with the brand new Terra Box exhibit.
