Academy of Science: Nightlife


 I've been wanting to go back to the California Academy of Sciences since I took my 1st graders.
Being on constant lookout of 22 children, you don't exactly get the most relaxing/enjoyable museum experience.

But they have this thing called Nightlife
It's only for 21+ so there are bars setup throughout and usually a band or some other special guest or show
But you get to do and see all the same things!
I got to see the Planetarium Show
It literally blew my mind!
I highly highly recommend it. But get their early because seats fill up fast.

I went there when I visited SF last summer!! It was so awesome. & when you throw a little alcohol in the mix it have to be about 100% cooler!!

I loved the rainforest in the dome with all the butterflies!

Love your blog! Hope you'll visit mine soon!

I know what you mean about the field trips, my favorite part of a field trip is afterward, heading back to school with everyone safe and accounted for. Glad you got to enjoy this space without students in tow!

That is so cool! We have OMSI here (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) that is very similar. I love going there and just realized they also have a 21+ night during the week, although now I live further away from it so can't really take advantage of that. It's a great idea though, because grown-ups like science too! ;)
