Bring your friends to an after-hours adventure at Liberty Science Center! On the third Thursday of every month, guests 21 and over can enjoy cocktails, food, music, dancing, laser shows, and more.
The next LSC After Dark party is “Sexy Science!”
Admit it: Science is sexy. At this party, you’ll learn all about the laws of attraction and the chemicals that make your hands sweat when that special someone walks by.
Let off some steam on the dance floor. Participate in erotic experiments. Come in a pair, in a group, or just come alone…after all, you never know who you might have chemistry with! All the exhibits in the Science Center will be open. Plus, experience a brand new Foo Fighters laser show in LSC’s massive IMAX Dome Theater.
