Experience the RMSC after dark, like you’ve never experienced it before for an evening full of family fun. Almost Overnights bring all of the fun and excitement of regularly offered school and scout group Overnights, but end right before bedtime (and before the museum comes to life!) so your family can enjoy the comfort of sleeping in your own bed. Kids of all ages and their families are welcome to join us for our newest family-friendly adventure and spend almost the whole night exploring your curiosity with us!

A spoonful of C12H22O11 helps the science go down! Just in time for Halloween, you and your family are in for a treat with Spooky Sweet Tooth Science Almost Overnight. Join us for a fun filled evening that is light on the tricks and heavy on the treats! Get ready to mix and experiment with sugary treats to discover chemistry in a whole new way. Zoom in on sugar crystals, investigate artificial colors that make candy so appealing, discover chocolate like never before. Meet dentists and discover objects from the RMSC collection.

Registration includes participation in three workshops, including:

  • Move it like a Molecule
    Get your body moving like a molecule and play the States of Matter game, discover a simple experiment that gets molecules moving right before your eyes and get hands-on building gumdrop molecules.
  • Candy Chemistry 101
    Perform experiments and investigate candy,  colors and more in candy chemistry 101. Taste the rainbow with candy chromatography and grab your goggles for some totally sweet chemical reactions!
