Adult Night 18+

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 to set up multiple shipping locations.
