Nights at the Museum

Nights at the Museum event web banner

We are starting to bring Nights at the Museum back at a limited capacity - mostly on our outdoor Science Trail and traveling exhibit hall ONLY. We have reduced the event hours and limited the amount of Science Center access, reformatted the event & activities layout and science demos to accommodate guests safely as well as added additional sanitation & safety protocols. Nights at the Museum will not take place monthly like it normally does. Please stay tuned to this page for the latest information.

On the last Friday of each month, from 6-9pm, guests of all ages can enjoy extended hours of exploration at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium! Each Night at the Museum is a different theme, which includes various interactive science crafts, activities, entertainment, exhibits, planetarium shows, and a chance to view the night sky in Palm Beach County's only public observatory! Food and beverage from Johnny Boys will be available for purchase throughout the evening. 

Admission to Nights at the Museum: $14.95 for adults, $12.95 for seniors, $10.95 for children (3-12), FREE for children under 3, and $6 for adult members (child members are FREE). Guests will receive 10% off on Gem Panning Rough and members will receive 20%!

Upcoming Nights at the Museum events:

  • Spooky Science - October 30th, 6-8pm: Spread out and celebrate all things spooky on our 5-acre Science Trail with plenty of room for social distancing! Click here for more info.
