AfterHours Up Close

Want to take a deeper dive into a fascinating topic? Our activity-driven AfterHours Up Close events highlight unique areas and exhibits around the Museum. Investigate the link between Beer & Butterflies, solve a mystery or go on a self-guided scavenger hunt. These events are smaller, there is no sampling, and capacities are limited to provide an immersive experience with a “VIP” feel.
