Upcoming Event



Indiana Jones… After Dark
Friday, June 10
6–10 p.m.

“It belongs in a museum!”

We couldn’t agree more, Indy! Dust off your best hat and enter an Indiana Jones themed costume contest. Get whipped into a frenzy watching well-known professional whip artist Gery Deer. Search for treasure through the museum halls in a scavenger hunt, make your own rubbing of ancient inscriptions, and take a selfie with a life sized replica boulder. Watch “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” on the big screen and see our very own “Fred” the solid crystal skull. Enjoy a performance of the movie series’ famous score by members of the Pittsburgh Philharmonic. Meet snakes from the Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium and see amazing museum artifacts up close while sipping on special themed cocktails. Cap off the night by dancing to music provided by Pittsburgh Vibes Unlimited!
