On Saturday, November 18, the National Museum of Natural History is throwing a first-ever after-hours Teen Takeover, after the museum is closed!

From 6:30 p.m to 9:00 p.m., Q?rius will transform into a party for Teens Only. There will be free food, a DJ, musical performances, hands-on science stations, and awesome opportunities to learn more about Youth Programs at the Natural History Museum. This will be the first time the Museum has ever hosted a Teen Night, and you don't want to miss it! For more information on the night’s schedule, specific performances, and great giveaways, email YouthNMNH@si.edu.
