Experience the mysterious ‘Masquerade’ at Science on the Rocks

Join Discovery Place Science for a night of intrigue at an exclusive ‘Masquerade’ event for adults.

CHARLOTTE – Join Discovery Place Science for a night of intrigue at an exclusive Masquerade’ event for adults, and make a beeline for the special exhibition Bug Lab to elevate your evening.

This month, Science on the Rocks guests will discover many thrills in various captivating activities. Immerse yourself in the drama in our costume contest. Design your own ornate mask. Relish in the joy of dance and delectable drinks as the mysteries of the night unveil themselves.

Bring your curiosity and be ready, because even the science comes in disguise. The event takes place from 5-9 p.m. Friday, March 15, at Discovery Place Science. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Guests must be 21 or older.

For an additional $3, step into the fantasy realm of Bug Lab. The larger-than-life bug exhibition was created by New Zealand’s world-famous museum Te Papa, working with five-time Academy Award-winning design and manufacture studio Weta Workshop, the studio behind the design and physical effects for “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

Complete the evening by getting to know the fantastic bugs living right under our noses in the IMAX film, Backyard Wilderness. Tickets to the 7 p.m. showing of the film, which documents a stunning array of unique wildlife imagery and behavior, cost $5 each.
