Science on the Rocks

Friday, January 18, 2019 through Friday, June 21, 2019
Discovery Place Science

Play like a kid, party like an adult

Science is shaken, not stirred, every third Friday of the month at Science on the Rocks. Each month features themed activities and a chance for adults age 21+ to explore the Museum after-hours. Unlike field trips from your childhood, Science on the Rocks transforms each floor of the Museum with crazy activities, costume contests, bars and music.

Meet your friends, bring a date or leave the kids at home for a Friday night you won’t soon forget!

For just an additional $5, add an IMAX viewing.

Must be 21 or older. Activities subject to change. Photo ID required for Museum entry. All IDs will be checked at the door. Check-in will be at Tryon St. Admissions. Cash/credit bars featuring beer, wine and liquor throughout Levels 1 and 2. Parking fee for Discovery Place Science Parking Deck is not included. Curio City Kitchen will be open, serving beer, wine and a special menu.
