Science on the Rocks

Get social with science at our award-winning, after-hours adults-only event!

  • 6:00 pm | 4 hours
  • Full Museum
  • General admission $22 | Members $18
  • Ages 21+

You’re invited to a night of socializing and science at Science on the Rocks—winner of Charlotte Magazine’s Best of the Best Award.

Uptown’s biggest social event is back, and you’re invited to join us monthly when Discovery Place Science stays open after hours for adults only. Grab a cocktail, encounter an animal, see a science show and get hands-on in our labs along with 1,000 of your closest friends!

Dance to the music or chill in our 7-story Accenture IMAX Dome Theatre for a documentary or planetarium show. Grab a date or a group of friends and make the night your own!

Our reimagined monthly series lets you experience the Museum after hours in a grown-up, kids-free environment. Create an evening all your own by adding cocktails and upgraded experiences when you arrive.

Tickets must be purchased online in advance. Tickets sell fast—get yours before they’re gone!

PLEASE NOTE: Your Science on the Rocks admission does NOT include entry into the Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes exhibition. Access to the Marvel exhibition first requires an admission ticket to Science on the Rocks. The option to purchase a ticket upgrade to enter the Marvel exhibition will be in your Science on the Rocks confirmation email.

You must be 21+ to attend. A photo ID is required.
