What to Expect

Here are just a few reasons you won’t want to miss this year’s Museum by Moonlight:

  • Take a ride down The Chocolate Slide! The 47-foot slide, themed like a river of chocolate, will send guests whirling through a Wonka-inspired wonderland from Level 2 to Level 1.
  • Step into the International Space Station (ISS) in Beyond Spaceship Earth and catch a show about Gus Grissom and the Liberty Bell 7.
  • Find the face-painters to help turn you into a beauty or a beast before midnight, then go ‘round and ‘round on a piece of local history—the Carousel!

Be prepared for a full night of fun for adults older than 21 with these top tips for the big event.
