OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Families will be able to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holidays and enjoy a bit of magic later this month.
Oklahoma families and Science Museum Oklahoma members can enjoy a night of wizarding fun on Nov. 15 during a Late Nite Lab.
“Our Late Nite Labs are for families with kids of all ages and combine so many of the things we know families love about the museum — hands-on science with our museum educators, our amazing exhibits and live shows, and just geeking out over things we love the most — like wizards and space,” said Greg Miller, SMO’s director of education and training.
From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Nov. 15, guests can craft a favorite wizard beverage with liquid nitrogen and butterscotch, get slimy with troll snot, write secret messages with disappearing ink, and try real-life magic tricks.
“Our Late Nite Labs are not exclusively for families with children with sensory processing disorders, but they are sensory-friendly evenings ideal for a family that wants a calmer experience than may be available during a typical daytime trip to the museum,” Miller added.
From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Dec. 6, guests can attend the ‘Galaxy Far, Far Away Late Nite Lab.’
During the event, visitors can build and test mini podracers and lightsabers, dig into a non-Newtonian fluid swamp, and create and master force lightning.
Family-friendly costumes are welcome at both events.
Tickets are $15 for adults, and $10 for children ages 3 and up. Children under 3 are free. Museum members will receive one free child admission with the purchase of an adult admission.
Organizers say ticket sales end at noon on the day of the event.
