Science After Dark: Nightmare at the Museum

October 12, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Details

Purchase Tickets 
It’s baaaaaaack! Mwahahahahaha! Like Michael Myers, our adult event has been gone for some time but always returns – and just in time for Halloween! We are celebrating our favorite season with an evening of tricks, treats, and, of course, science. There will be fizzy pumpkin potions, slime-making, tinkering with guillotines, Frankentoys, mad science and more! Plus, Haunted Hotel of Arkansas will create scares and haunts for us, Game Goblins will have some spooky tabletop games, and Historic Arkansas will demonstrate how Dowsing rods/Divining Rods are used to detect paranormal activity. McArthur Military Museum will also be joining us!
Admission is $5 or free for museum members. You must be at least 21 to attend (we check IDs at the door.) Beer from Stone’s Throw will be available for purchase as well as wine, cocktails and pizza. (You must purchase wine, cocktail and pizza tickets online or at the door during the event. Beer can be bought from Stone’s Throw directly during the event.)


About Science After Dark

Who says the Museum of Discovery is only for kids?!? Not the hundreds of 21-and-older science-and-fun lovers who attend Science After Dark each month. Because, science is fun … at any age! Science After Dark provides visitors the opportunity to have fun and learn about science in a unique setting. Museum educators pick a science-related topic and build an entertaining, interactive evening around it. You never know what will sprout, pop, fizzle, or glow. We invite you to discover the science of having fun with a cocktail in your hand. And beyond the themed activities each month, Science After Dark admission ($5, free for members) includes access to all museum galleries and our hands-on, interactive exhibits.
