Science on the Rocks

Our Science on the Rocks event series is currently paused. Stay tuned for future dates.

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!

Discovery Place knows how to make parents feel like kids, a gift we all need from time to time. Other venues should take notice: This is how you do community outreach, one liquid-nitrogen wine slushie at a time.
