Science is shaken, not stirred, and every third Friday of the month Science on the Rocks returns to Discovery Place. Each month features themed activities and a chance for adults (21 and up) to explore the Museum after-hours. Unlike field trips from your childhood, Science on the Rocks transforms each floor of the Museum with crazy activities, costume contests, bars and music.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to join us for a night celebrating your favorite spies and covert operatives.

  • See if you’re stealthy enough to pass through the laser maze undetected
  • Pull a MacGyver and see what you can make with rubber bands, clothespins and tape
  • Outwit your fellow operatives in a nail-biting spy movie trivia challenge
  • See how quickly can you change into your disguise in the Quick Change Challenge

Discover the world of fantastic bugs in the Bug Lab special exhibition. Immerse yourself in the elaborate world created by the insects themselves inside Bug Lab. This captivating world of interactive art installations will envelop you, as you venture through larger-than-life “bug chambers.” Explore the world as bugs do, through incredible sensory experiences. Upgrade your experience for just $3 more.

For an additional $5, follow a very curious Giant Panda named Qian Qian on her extraordinary journey into the wild. Pandas, an original IMAX® film, is narrated by Kristen Bell and takes audiences to Chengdu Panda Base in China where researchers are dedicated to protecting the Giant Panda species.
