August After Dark
Saturday, August 27
Round out a perfect Pittsburgh summer at Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s end of summer blowout… After Dark. Kids enjoyed free reign of the museum all summer, but now grownups can get in on the fun. Dig for fossils in Bonehunters Quarry, take adult-only docent tours, finally open that tiny and mysterious door in Bird Hall, or chill in the Sculpture Court while you enjoy a signature cocktail.
Mood lighting will up the wow-factor of our historic halls, and a DJ will be taking requests all night. There will be a meet and greet with live reptiles, and our new interactive gallery Discovery Basecamp will be open to explore. For gearheads who love all things that go, there will be a car show in the museum’s parking lot, Hot Wheels tracks to build, and a lecture on the history of transportation.
Music provided by DJ Bill Jakub of Pittsburgh Vibes Unlimited. Lecture on the history of transportation provided by the Frick Car and Carriage Museum. Pit crew simulation game provided by the Pit Stop Challenge. Slotcars provided by the Pittsburgh Slotcar Racing League. Car customization demonstration provided by Team Nutz Technology. Buggy vehicles provided by Carnegie Mellon University Buggy Alumni Association.
