Museum of Nature launches a new season of Nature Nocturne parties—starting 10.25.19

By Greggory Clark on October 10, 2019

A new season of Nature Nocturne events is launching with Moon Mission on October 25th, a space-themed late night party at the Canadian Museum of Nature.

Since 2013, the popular series has attracted more than 100,000 partygoers by offering a unique opportunity to explore the Museum after hours. The Museum’s choice to make Nature Nocturne a 19+ event means folks can grab a drink, explore galleries and exhibitions, and squeeze their way onto the dance floor—actually there are three dance floors throughout the building, and the Beau’s Lounge downstairs.

All of the Museum’s public spaces get transformed for the event, which has DJs, live performers, or interactive installations in almost every room.

It’s highly recommended to get tickets in advance, because the Nature Nocturne parties sell out frequently.
