21+ Night at the Carnegie Science Center

Published On August 8, 2012 | By Kymbo Slice | The Arts

Call your babysitter, grab some cash and prepare to get your science on this Thursday at the Carnegie Science Center‘s 21+ night. Love museums like this but hate dealing with the little ones? No worries! Tonight’s the night for the mature attendee, that is, as long as you don’t have one too many and start actin a fool! If you haven’t been to the Science Center before, we highly suggest checking it out. They have provided us adults with plenty of incentives to get down there without kiddos.

For just $10, you’ll have access to four floors of exhibits. We’re particularly excited for the GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World exhibit, one perfect for any music lover. This touring exhibition of the National GUITAR Museum “explores all facets of the world’s most popular instrument, from its history as an instrument of popular culture over the past 400 years to the science of creating sound with wood and steel.” The exhibit is presented via many mediums, such as hands-on interactives, models, touchscreens, performance video, audio, stunning images, and photographs. Be sure to visit the Atrium for the world’s largest playable guitar.

Visitors can also enjoy planetarium shows, scientific demos at the Works Theater and a live performance from locals Faithful Sinners. Check out 1/2 of the band in action below:

A cash bar and food will be available for purchase. And if you haven’t already seen it, complete your evening with Dark Knight Rises ($12 non-members, $11 members) on Pittsburgh’s biggest screen. Evening shows are at 7:15 and 10:15PM. Or hell, see it again. You know everyone in this town is going to see it twice anyway just to represent! Buy your Batman tickets in advance just to be safe.

21+ night runs from 6-10PM. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here.
