After Dark: Sideshow Science
Step right up! For one night and one night only, the Exploratorium transforms into a Carnival featuring Amazing Animal Acts, Astounding Forces of Nature, Mysterious Mental Manipulations, and Thrilling Games of Skill and Chance. Within these walls lurk some of the Most Astonishing Phenomena Found in Nature - the biggest “freakshow” of them all. Witness the Whimsical and Weird! Behold Unbelievable Technologies and sample science that Defies Common Sense! Can Cosmic Rays from the Edge of Time really pass through the museum? Do animals have more Complicated Cognition than we ever imagined? Discover some of Nature's Strangest Curiosities at Sideshow Science.
Not a theater, cabaret, or gallery, Exploratorium's After Dark contains aspects of all three. Each evening showcases a different topic - from music to sex to electricity - but all include a cash bar and film screenings, plus an opportunity to play with our hundreds of hands-on exhibits.
