Science on the Rocks

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 from your favorite local radio stations: Channel 96.1, 102.9 The Lake, 96.9 The Kat and 106.5 The End.

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.
