Have you ever wanted to ask the Wright Brothers about their first successful flight? Or would you like to tell Galileo how much the telescope has changed since his days? Or maybe you’d like to tell Katniss Everdeen that you were rooting for her in the Hunger Games!
On Saturday August 9th, you’ll have the chance to meet these and other popular characters from science and science fiction when Night at the Museum returns to Tellus! Actors portraying historical figures like Albert Einstein and Marie Curie will impress you with their scientific discoveries, while pop-science characters like Indiana Jones and Captain America will explain how science was important in their everyday “lives.”
Every visitor will receive an autograph book to document this special night. Children 12 and under are encouraged to dress up as their favorite science or science fiction character and participate in an Instagram photo contest. We will award a special prize for the winner. (We kindly request that adults not dress up in costume so as not to be confused with actors.)
If that’s not enough for you, then stay for a crowd-pleasing show by the Tellus Madd Scientists! See how our wacky experts experiment with science to bring you the best programs in the state. The Tellus Madd Scientists crew will be sure to entertain and amaze you with demonstrations that explode with fun.
Don’t worry about grabbing dinner on the run – the Café will be open until 9 PM.
