On Saturday, October 13th , the National Museum of Natural History is throwing its Second Annual Teen Night Out, and this year it’s a throwback to the '90s! 

In anticipation of the Hall of Fossils: Deep Time exhibit opening in June of 2019, take a trip to the not-so-deep year of 1993 with big screen dinosaurs and the best of '90s music and fashion. There will be free food, a DJ, a screening of the original "Jurassic Park," hands-on science stations, and awesome opportunities to learn more about Youth Programs at the Natural History Museum. Come in costume, and help us celebrate the best decade of the modern era!
