PacSci Happy Hour

Learn, drink, and have fun while engaging with our interactive exhibits after hours. PacSci Happy Hours are 21+ events.

Each Happy Hour features a different theme to explore different topics such as art, games, and the environment as they relate to scientific topics. If you want the freedom to explore and play at PacSci without any children around, you won’t want to miss these events.

All guests are expected to drink responsibly. 


August Happy Hour

August’s Happy Hour features larger than life versions of some classics like Jenga and Uno, as well as a mega version of Ravensburger’s Make ‘n’ Break game on site. We’ll also offer some classic board games, or feel free to bring your own from home if you want a unique venue to gather all your friends.
