Step into the world of wonder and imagination! We’re taking a journey like no other, where you'll be whisked away to the 1800s and a fantastical land of haberdashery, tufting, tea dueling, metal working and so much more! Whether you take inspiration from the Victorian age or the American Wild West, Steampunk will be on display the entire night.

Get your hands on the finest fabrics and materials at our haberdashery station and create your very own Steampunk-inspired accessories or sink your fingers into the world of tufting to craft a masterpiece.

Feeling daring? Put your taste buds and biscuit-dunking skills to the test in our fierce game of tea dueling, where only the strongest biscuits survive!

But wait, there's more! Take a stroll through the Parlor Car, marvel at mesmerizing zootropes and visit Science Live for a one-of-a-kind show.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. We expect the event to sell out so don’t delay!


A VIP ticket grants you access to the Wild Wild West Saloon for a night of "dueling" and signature cocktails. The saloon opens at 6:30 p.m. and tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door.


SMO21: 101

SMO21 is your ticket to an adult night at the museum! With cocktails, music and experiments that are too advanced for the younger set, this is the perfect date night, girls night or just get-a-group-together night out! 

Here's what you need to know:

  1. All attendees must be 21+
  2. Parties are more fun with friends. Bring a group. We're the perfect party before the party. 
  3. Dress to THRILL but proper attire is required. We are a PG-13 museum after all ;-)
  4. There's always a Secret Room and we won't give you hints.
  5. The signature cocktail is legendary. Buy a VIP ticket and get a free one!
  6. Speaking of VIP, your VIP ticket grants you access to the VIP lounge with its own entertainment, a bar, and discounts on refills of that signature cocktail!
  7. The theme is everything. Embrace it and you may be rewarded. #buttons
  8. There is no re-entry allowed for SMO21. Once you leave, the party's over.


We'll announce dates and themes on this page...but SMO21 can sell out fast (especially VIP tickets).
