PacSci Happy Hour. Be Curious. Mix it Up.
PacSci at Night Happy Hours are the ultimate way to wind down from a hectic week and get inspired for the weekend. These 21+ get-togethers include craft beer and wine, as well as free reign to explore PacSci’s interactive exhibits, after-hours for less than the cost of general admission. We’re talking living exhibits like the Tropical Butterfly House and naked mole rats, fun and hands-on interactives, and the Planetarium.
Every Happy Hour has a special theme. From games to art, flora to fauna, experience science with your favorite craft beer or local wine in a unique and stimulating environment. Bring the crew from the office, friends from the neighborhood, anyone you want to impress and inspire. Don’t miss these unique events!
All guests are expected to drink responsibly.
