Did the owl lose your Hogwarts letter? Discovery Place Science is giving you a second chance to leave the Muggles behind and embrace the magic with Science on the Rocks: Wizarding World, an adults-only night at the Museum.

  • Dress up as your favorite Harry Potter-themed character and you could win our costume contest
  • Try on the Sorting Hat to find out whether you belong in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin (first 500 guests only)
  • Challenge your new housemates to a game of Quidditch Beer Pong
  • Make your own wand (or does the wand make the wizard?)
  • Meet with our Potions Master to create a bubbly concoction
  • Enjoy a special performance by Hannibal, winner of the People’s Choice Award for Close-Up Magic
  • Sample a Butterbeer Slushie
  • Learn how to perfect your hand lettering technique with SkillPop so McGonagall can’t dock any points on your next essay
  • Get to know some fantastic beasts who live at the Museum

Plus, explore the culture, conquests and heritage of the man more legendary than He Who Must Not Be Named in our new limited-engagement exhibition, Genghis Khan.  Grab a drink, hang out with your friends and enjoy music from local radio stations as you explore the Museum after hours!
