The Bruce Museum is set to host its sixth annual Night at the Museum benefit event from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9.
Night at the Museum invites children to explore exhibits in their pajamas, participate in arts and crafts and go on a scavenger hunt through the museum. The event will also include a musical performance from Songs for Seeds, experiments with Mad Science and pizza.
While the kids have their fun, parents can enjoy tacos and other bites from The Old Greenwich Social Club, an open bar and have the opportunity to bid on prizes such as dinner at local restaurants and a two-night stay at the White Elephant hotel in Nantucket.
This year’s theme coincides with the museum’s current exhibition, ReTooled: Highlights from the Hechinger Collection, which features more than 40 pieces from artists including Jim Dine, Red Grooms, Claes Oldenburg and Walker Evans.
Prior to the event, Roberta Roller Rabbit, at 103 Greenwich Avenue, is hosting a “shop and sip” event from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 10. With on-site monogramming by Monogram Mary, light bites, prosecco and a 10-percent discount (with an additional 10-percent of proceeds benefiting the Museum), this also offers an opportunity to purchase Roberta Roller Rabbit’s iconic PJs for the kids to sport at Night at the Museum.
“We can’t wait for our largest family event of the year,” says Special Events Manager Brooke Amico. “Tickets tend to go very quickly for this event as we have a limited capacity, so I encourage you to book your spots now for this special evening at the Museum. Valet parking will be provided.”
Tickets are $85 for adults and $30 for children.
