Night at the Museum



Friday, November 10, 2017

The Bruce Museum will host its fifth annual Night at the Museum from 5 to 7:30 pm. Children are invited to come to the museum in their favorite pajamas for a night filled with fun arts and craft activities, a scavenger hunt, pizza and a musical performance by Songs for Seeds. Parents will enjoy yummy bites, an open wine/beer bar and a family-focused silent auction.

This festive event will have your kids gasping and laughing at the Mad Scientist’s exciting and merry science experiments. See an Insta-Snow explosion! The Mad Scientist will introduce the audience to a mysterious North Pole rock that turns out to be Dry Ice. Using the Dry Ice, the Mad Scientist will make bubbling potions, popping corks, shivering quarters and clouds of fog. 

During the event, guests will be able to view the Bruce Museum’s new captivating exhibitions Treasures of the Earth: Mineral Masterpieces from the Robert Wiener Collection and In the Limelight: Toulouse-Lautrec Portraits from the Herakleidon Museum.  

Proceeds from the events will benefit the Bruce Museum’s children’s education and scholarship program.
