What is Adult Swim?
This is a new evening series exclusively for adults that mixes good food and drink, music and dancing, and fun, playful science and art events at the Museum. Leave the kids at home, invite friends, or take a date! Each Adult Swim will feature a special theme or topic as well as tasty spirits and treats.

What about parking?
Free Parking! Parking in the Museum’s lot north of the building is free for Adult Swim and surrounding streets are free after 5pm! You can avoid parking hassles by taking Intercity Transit. The Museum is only two blocks away from the downtown transit center.

    We have a book of 700+ science experiments that Robyn and I are going to look through, see if there is anything suited to something like this.
