Science World After Dark

Science World After Dark is a special monthly event where adults (ages 19+) take over the dome! With admission, you are free to explore the exhibits and galleries at your leisure. There are drinks, food, and music­––and there’s always a great movie playing in the OMNIMAX® Theatre.
