Calling all creatures of the night: reserve your NightLife tickets in advance and see what’s revealed once the sun goes down. Reconnect with favorite faces (we’re looking at you, Claude!) while exploring new and familiar spaces. With nearly 40,000 live animals, two new exhibits, the iconic Shake House and four-story Rainforest, and outdoor dining beneath the stars the night is sure to be wild. For adults 21+.
Can’t attend in person? NightSchool is still in session! Join us virtually on select Thursdays via YouTube or Facebook for an eclectic mix of science and culture. Streaming live (and available as recordings afterwards) on the Academy’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
