Try your luck! Texas hold ‘em, Roulette, Blackjack, Craps, and 3 Card Poker are the games we’ll have on the casino floor.
Don’t tell the fuzz – located somewhere at LSC After Dark is our hidden speakeasy! Can you find it? Delicious drink tastings await you!
Witness thrilling, fiery experiments that you’ve got to see to believe! Check out this video from our very first Science Speakeasy event, back in 2016, where we burned a real $100 bill (no damage done!).

We remember the Roaring ‘20s as the years of jazz and Prohibition, but it was also an explosive time in astronomy and space science. At our new planetarium show, you’ll learn all about this incredible time period – from the launch of the world’s first liquid fuel rocket to the discovery of the Big Bang – and gain a new appreciation for this decade!
Catch the show at 7:30 pm or 8:30 pm.
You can experience Astronomy of the Roaring ‘20s when you make an additional $5 donation to support our programs for 91,000 students from at-risk communities. (Please make your donation in person at the event.)
thank u, our next laser show is the Ariana Grande Laser Show! Rock out to hits from the pop star set to high-tech lasers in the LSC Giant Dome Theater.
Catch the show at 7:45 pm or 9:15 pm.
Like Astronomy of the Roaring ‘20s, you can experience the Ariana Grande Laser Show when you make an additional $5 donation to support our programs for 91,000 students from at-risk communities. (Please make your donation in person at the event.)
Which one of your friends is a LIAR? At our special lab, you can take a real lie detector test and interrogate your friends! Learn the science behind polygraph tests and gain a new appreciation for The Maury Show.
While supplies last, we’re giving out free beads and fedoras for you to get into the 1920s style!
Speaking of 1920s style, we’re also holding a costume contest on the dance floor! Costumes are never required at LSC After Dark events, but always encouraged. Feel free to show up in your most inspired outfit and compete in the competition! Be sure to share all your best photos with us online via hashtag #LSCAfterDark.
For an additional $6, you can experience LSC’s newest premium exhibition, Angry Birds Universe!
Based on the popular games, the exhibition transports you into the world of Angry Birds for interactive adventures, both physically challenging and mentally stimulating. Use real slingshots to aim birds through the air, build and race vehicles in a live version of Angry Birds Go!, draw your own bird and animate it in the design studio, and more!
You may have noticed one of our coolest exhibitions, the Dream Machine, was missing the last few months. We took it offline to add new features, and now it's back with new lights to accompany the sounds and smells!
The Dream Machine debuted at New York’s Panorama Festival in 2017, but now it’s home to LSC. In this interactive, sensory adventure, you'll use bicycle pumps to produce combinations of colors, sounds, and scents – some pleasant, some unpleasant. Explore each of the different stations to experience a complex range of human emotions, including happiness, disgust, shame, and hope.
Every month at LSC After Dark, our Innovation Station highlights the latest in must-see technological innovations.
This month, we’re joined by the company Fetch. Fetch is an app that enables people to get internet access from their smartphones to their computers without a hotspot. It’s a great way to create more affordable and faster internet usage – a safe and secure cyber alternative to using public and non-secured WiFi networks!
Let’s party like it’s 1920! All night, rock out to music on the dance floor from LSC After Dark returning favorite DJ Midnite.
Oh, and how could we forget? Make sure to stop by our Tanqueray Gin Bar and enjoy cocktails such as the "Monkey Gland," "Bearcat," and "Bee's Knees."
As always, you can also enjoy beer, wine, White Claw, and smoking cocktails.
We can’t wait! Click here to get tickets now to LSC After Dark: Science Speakeasy, Jan. 16, 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm.
