Science After Hours is an evening event series exclusively for adults ages 21+ featuring experiments, demonstrations, games, and innovative and engaging science curated by Philadelphia’s premier science museum in collaboration with organizations across the city.

Each evening showcases a different topic—from cocktail concocting to time traveling—and each includes cash bars and opportunities to explore The Franklin Institute’s hands-on exhibit spaces. Enjoy live performances, surprising challenges, unexpected extravaganzas, and more, depending on each evening's lineup.
