Color me nerdy (I’m cool with it) but GLOW is one of my favorite Science After Dark events at the Science Museum of Virginia.
We’ve been to the past two events and we’ll be back again this year despite having plans earlier in the evening because my kids and I just can’t miss it.
The kids have a great time making glow tape art on the floor of the Science Museum (and on their shirts, and on my shirt), drawing with glowing markers on black paper (and inevitably on their faces, because, whatever it’s fun) and going GLOW bowling. Families can play on a giant light brite, play with blacklight slime and other fluorescent fun. You can even sample some radiant food in the Boost! kitchen.
Plus, staying out late running around a museum at night is just fun!
In The Dome, Cosmic Expeditions are taking off at 6:30 and 7:15pm followed by a special screening of Back to the Future Part II at 8pm. Your 1989 self is going to be SO excited to get an up-close view of a real DeLorean in the Rotunda.
Star lovers can gaze outside and learn a thing or two with the Richmond Astronomical Society.
Science After Dark is a monthly evening event held on the third Friday of the month at the Science Museum of Virginia. The next Science After Dark will be held on Friday, December 18.
