Science on Tap: Animals Unleashed

Animal science has been unleashed in the Museum! Join us for an adults-only night at the Museum full of kooky animal facts, childish fun and choice cocktails.

In honor of our summer touring exhibition, BODY WORLDS: ANIMAL INSIDE OUT, we’re planning a night full of wild animal science. Learn about R-rated animal mating behavior in a discussion lead by Catherine Lowry Franssen, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at Longwood University. When you’re done blushing, head over to meet the creatures in our Animal Lab, watch a sheep heart dissection, learn about climate impacts on the animal kingdom, create your own animal mask and take a new Instagram profile photo in front of our green screen, try your hand at making a dog leash, or check out a live astronomy show in the Dome.

Dog Wagon and Hungry Turtle will be here for sustenance. We’ll have three floors of beverages for your drinking pleasure: Väsen will be on track level offering two beers, Belle Isle Moonshine will be camped on the third level with two signature cocktails, and friendly Museum staff will be on the main level serving a variety of beer and wine options.

Just when you thought we were done, we’ll have a special showing of Snakes on a Plane at 9 pm in the Dome. Samuel L. Jackson on a 76-foot screen. Yes please.

*Guests must be 21 or older to attend, no exceptions.

Tickets are $10 for the general public and $8.50 for members. Food and drink available for purchase. Click here to get your tickets today!

Add Snakes on a Plane to your night for $5. Add BODY WORLDS: ANIMAL INSIDE OUT to your night for $7.50 for the general public and $5 for members. These tickets must be purchased in person. 

When: Thursday, June 14 from 6 to 10 pm
