In our second event this season at the Museum of Science, we embraced science and technology – in contrast to our previous nautical clambake, Sunset at the Museum of Science. Outside of the Museum of Science, rotating searchlights projected high into the sky welcoming guests. Inside, “lab assistants” passed beverages in test tubes, while sporting white coats and chemistry goggles. Red, green, and blue carpets directed guests to three wings each decorated and lit with the same colors. Décor was elegant, yet edgy and upbeat, and each wing featured tables with red, green or blue linens topped with fun and interactive scientific centerpieces. Guests loved seeing and playing with the hand boilers, plasma balls, pin boxes and Newton’s Cradles from their youth.
During the event, guests wandered through the museum discovering all sorts of scientific facts with all of their senses. A roving mad scientist and magician entertained guests with their tricks and experiments. In the Blue Wing, a DJ spun popular music while mad scientist bartenders served Sinister Ciders in beakers at a custom ice bar. Guests were also invited to attend a wide variety of educational shows throughout the evening including Adrenaline Rush at the Omni Theater or Lightning! in the Theater of Electricity.
We can’t wait to hold our next electrifying event at the Museum of Science!
