Museum after Dark: Grown-Up Game Night
Friday, November 1, 2019
5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Mark your calendars and plan to attend this fun-filled evening of life-size games (and local libations)—and a screening of Toy Story. Free activities for general admission guests take place in the museum lobby, Daniels Auditorium, and the Museum Shop, where they can taste some of the North Carolina wines available for sale. In addition, on Level 3, our new Toy Boom! exhibit (also free) will be open for all visitors.
MOHA/museum members can enjoy one hour (6–7 p.m.) of Putt-Putt & Pilsners, as well! Learn more: bit.ly/2IH0bNW
