The last time I was at the Science Museum, I was more than a decade younger (ouch), probably had about twice the energy and sadly, was probably about the same height.

Turns out, I’m probably not alone. The Science Museum is making efforts to prove it’s not just for kids. And for those adults who haven’t visited since they were kids, it’ll be a nice trip down memory lane — but this time with cash bars. Holler.

On Wednesday, March 30, the Science Museum of Minnesota will hold its first ever 21+ event called “Social Science” — think bar meets history.

From 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., guests of the legal drinking age and up will have access to the museum’s exhibits and programs, minus the 3-foot screaming school kids. Food and drinks will be provided, plus a live DJ in the lobby and “adult-oriented programming.”

The cult classic, “The Mummy” will be screened in the Auditorium at 8 and 9:30 p.m., plus live theater performances and a grown-up version of Pictionary on the Atrium Stage.

Visitors can also take home a keepsake of the night by visiting the open photo booth. Though word of the wise, start with the photo booth before hitting the cash bar — these photos will also be uploaded to the Science Museum’s Flickr page.

Food will be provided from Crave, The Golden Fig and Tea Source.

And if all goes well, this could be the first of many similar events. The Science Museum says they hope to make Social Science a quarterly event.

Now that’s some science I’ll gladly sign up for.

Tickets to Social Science are $12 per person ($8 for members). For more information, check out the website.
