September 19 & December 26 | Museum closes at 9:00 p.m.
You asked, and we answered. For everyone who has wished for access to the museum in the evenings after work, here’s your chance… HMNS will stay open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.!
We don’t mean just the permanent halls, either. Drop by the Wortham Giant Screen Theatre, the Cockrell Butterfly Center and the all-new, renovated Burke Baker Planetarium.* They’ll stay open, too! But that’s not all. All special exhibitions will also be open.* It’s your chance to see them without all the huge crowds!
Plus, take advantage of two public tours* at 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. featuring the Hall of Ancient Egypt and the Morian Hall of Paleontology, and grab a drink at the cash bar. We will also offer exclusive tours* of the halls that are not normally offered during regular hours.
Museum restaurant will also be open.
Take a stroll, catch a flick and enjoy a wonderful evening out at HMNS After Dark.
*Requires a separate ticket purchase.
