What does the Vancouver Aquarium, Telus World of Science, and the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre all have in common? Some may say they are all kid-friendly, educational establishments. Others would say they’re all great locations to spend a rainy day, but in fact, they are all hosts to entertaining adult-only events that provide a unique activity for date night.
The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is one of the most recent additions to the adult-only evening events, and will be hosting an after hours experience at their venue on Thursday, October 13th for Cosmic Nights: Science of Science Fiction, a party for the geek in all of us!
On October 13, you’re invited to explore the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre after hours for drinks, games, and a chance to experience a planetarium show about Alien World’s and a lecture about Juno’s mission to Jupiter and Europa.
This 19+ event is a great gathering opportunity for those who are fascinated by the solar system or who are just interested in doing something different on a Thursday night
From 6:30pm – 10:00pm, you can enjoy drinks, music, games, demonstrations, and more. You can see both the planetarium and the lecture, or simply wander around the gallery with a drink and play some games.
If you have never heard of the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre or maybe the last time you visited the building was in grade school for a field trip, $ 20 will bring you back down nostalgia lane. It’s worth it just to see the giant crab in front of the building. Fun fact: the six meter tall stainless steel crab was a gift from the women of the Vancouver Centennial Committee to celebrate Canada’s 100th birthday in 1967.
