What are Adult Nights?
Explora Adult Nights began in 2004 in response to requests from members and visitors who wanted to experience Explora in a whole new way: without the kids! Each adults-only evening features a unique theme with related activities—from performances and guest lectures, to art and science installations, to hands-on science experiments with surprising materials.
1. Online: You can select as many boxes as you'd like, each box is for two people to attend together. Email email@example.com to set up multiple shipping locations.
Explora Adult Nights will follow the City of Albuquerque's guidance. As of August 2nd, regardless of vaccination status, masks will be required indoors. We appreciate everyone's cooperation in lowering community spread.
