When we were in elementary school, one of the most popular class field trips was to go to the museum. The planetarium was always a standout to me as a kid and is one of the reasons why space is one of my favorite things to this day. I still love going to the museum (the Poison exhibit was super interesting), but I'm surprised when people give me a look when I say that.


Why did these trips have to stop when you got older? The Grand Rapids Public Museum is a place for people of all ages to attend, and with this new event, the Museum is inviting you back for a museum trip just for adults.




Museum Adventure After Dark

On Wednesday, May 1st from 6 pm to 9 pm, The Grand Rapids Public Museum is inviting adults 21+ who may not have been to the museum in a long time or haven't been to the museum for themselves (without the kiddos) to come and enjoy the museum and planetarium in a first-of-its-kind event: Museum Adventure After Dark.

What makes this event 21+? Well, that would be the specially curated bar, sponsored by New Holland Brewing. On top of the current exhibits, Mandela: The Official Exhibition and Fashion and Nature,  and the usual exhibits, the planetarium will also be open and there will be an appetizer menu of elevated camp food favorites.
