    Grown-up’s Only Sci-Fi Night at Children’s Museum
    Bringing Out-of-this-World Fun
    Dover, NH (March 10, 2018)  Science fiction fandom is no longer a geeky little secret you have to keep hidden from friends and family. And it’s also no longer just for the kids. Grown-ups can break out their light sabers and join the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire on Thursday, March 15, from 7 to 9pm for Sci-Fi Night!
    The museum’s Throwback Thursday: Grown-up Play Dates happen just once a month and are for adults 21+. Explore the museum’s funky exhibits, and enjoy arts and crafts, experiments, contests and competitions, specialty drinks and snacks, with new themes each month.
    This month, grown-ups can come in character costumes from their favorite sci-fi movies or books. They can take the tin-foil fashion challenge, or test their knowledge with sci-fi trivia. Then they can try to program a humanoid robot, create and paint their own planet art, or indulge in cocktails and beers from a cash bar provided by 7th Settlement Brewery…better than any from Mos Eisley.
    The Grown-up Play Dates are part of a monthly series. Next month on April 19th will be a chance to celebrate with “The ‘Way Back’ Birthday Bash” featuring classic party games. Pull out the tux for the May 17th “80s Prom” night. June 14th will be a “Kick-off To Summer Party” complete with tie-dye, and sandcastle contests.
    Guests must have a valid ID to attend. Tickets are on sale online through 5pm on February 15th for $10 and are $12 at the door. Visit www.childrens-museum.org to learn more or to purchase tickets.
