A special evening just for members!

Thursday, July 11 from 5:30–9 p.m.

As part of Member Appreciation Month, we are opening the entire Museum for an after-hours event just for you, our members. Explore your Griffin MSI favorites or new exhibitions like Notes to Neurons to discover the power of music in our lives and its ability to connect us to one another.

Additionally, you can visit the reimagined Henry Crown Space Center and be sure to stop in the Rotunda for a brand-new experience without the daytime crowds. There will also be special activities and opportunities throughout the evening. The Museum Kitchen will be open. You can also enter a raffle to win a special prize.


This event is free for Griffin MSI members with advance registration, and tickets can be reserved up to the guest number listed on your membership card. Capacity is limited so we recommend reserving your tickets early!

Additional experiences such as the U-505 On-board Tour, Coal Mine and 007 Science: Inventing the World of James Bond require ticket purchases. Discounts will be applied once added to your cart. The Blue Paradox, Numbers in Nature and Idea Factory reservations will be available onsite. The Giant Dome Theater will be playing films for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking is free for all members during events.
