Every Third Thursday of the month | 7pm – 10pm
Every third Thursday evening each month, ArtScience Museum keeps its doors open straight through until 10pm offering free performances, late exhibition viewings and special 1-for-1 entry to exhibitions (7pm-10pm).*
Shake off your mid-week doldrums and experience all the evening has to offer. See a different side of the museum after regular hours where exploration and experimentation are de rigueur of the night; where artistic collaboration and discovery take over the museum’s spaces; where disciplinary boundaries are challenged as performance and new media art collide and meld together.
