Explore the Museum of Natural History after dark for an evening of pizza and STEM fun! Each month, students will explore a different area of science, technology, and culture with interactive demonstrations, fun activities, and hands-on materials. Each child receives an official MNH Miner Helmet with a head lamp to keep and the group explores the darkened Bird and Mammal Hall galleries as part of the evening’s activities. This is a drop off program, long enough for parents to have dinner or even go see a movie! 

For students in grades 1-5; $30 per student per program.
