Illuminate at The Michigan Science Center

There is always a new reason to visit The Michigan Science Center. They are constantly opening new exhibits and hosting fun events that give you a unique opportunity to check out the center up close and personal. Last month they opened a new exhibit called the Creatures of Light, this exhibit features organisms that produce their own light and explores the various reasons they are able to do this. This exhibit was curated by the American Museum of Natural History and will be showing at the Science Center through mid January.

If you would like to get an in depth look at light and see the Science Center after hours you can attend Illuminate, an after hours event at the museum this Saturday, October 22nd. The museum will open its doors for a special after hours event that will feature hands on activities, demonstrations, performances, desserts and adult beverages. We have attended one of these after hours in the past and we were pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had. It was fun to walk around the place with a glass of wine after hours, much different from the days of going there on a school trip!

Tickets to attend Illuminate are $40 a piece for adults and $12 a piece for children. There are also VIP reception tickets available for $250 a person. The event runs from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Saturday. If you would like more details about speakers and VIP tickets please visit the website here.
