Science After Dark: Go Bananas!

When: Fri., Jan. 25, 5-8 p.m. 2019

We’re so excited to bring the touring exhibition, Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious to the Museum that we’re going bananas with excitement! So let’s go bananas together with a night of monkey-themed fun! We'll be making banana bike-powered smoothies, conducting fruit dissections and extracting DNA from bananas. Our friends from WCVE will be on hand to help everyone make their own kite – one of George’s favorite toys – and at 8 pm we’re showing of the 2006 film, Curious George, (rated G) in the Dome. And if that wasn't enough, we'll even have a visit from Curious George himself and his friend, the Man with the Yellow Hat! Appearances at 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 pm. As always, we’re hosting all-live Cosmic Expeditions in the Dome at 6:30 and 7:15 pm; space is limited to the first 250 guests at each show, no ticket required. After the shows, step outside to stargaze through telescopes with the Richmond Astronomical Society (weather permitting).

Price: $10.
