Adult wizards whose robes may have collected some dust and whose wand skills have gotten a bit rusty are invited to brush up on their magical abilities during Science Museum Oklahoma’s “SMO 21: Wizard Night School” from 6:30-10 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25, an adults-only (21+) night at the museum located at 2020 Remington Place in Oklahoma City.
Community partners Oklahoma Blood Institute, deadCenter Film and Alabaster Caverns State Park will join SMO’s professors for the back-to-wizarding-school event that will include dueling refresher courses, bats and other almost-magical beasts, the semi-reliable Witch Way After-Hours Mini Bus careening through the museum, virtual reality, a trip to SMO’s Wand Shop, Wizard Sportsball and many more magical, one-night-only events.
“Maybe you didn’t get into an elite wizarding school in the British Isles — or it’s just been a while since you’ve worked on your continuing magic education,” said Clint Stone, vice president of programs for SMO.
“No matter the wizard, there’s something for you. We’ll dissect ‘dragon’ eyes, do some remedial herbology and even visit with some of the scrappier, almost-magical beasts hanging around our halls.”
Online pre-sale tickets will be available exclusively to SMO 21 email subscribers from 8-10 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19. If not sold out, general public ticketing will begin at 10 a.m. online and over the phone also on Sept. 19. Tickets are $21 in advance and limited to four per transaction. Guests can join the SMO 21 email list online at www.sciencemuseumok.org/smo21.
Tickets include all activities and access to the museum. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance as the event is expected to sell out. No tickets will be available at the door.
The full museum will be open during SMO 21, giving guests the opportunity to explore the museum’s exhibits and gardens. In addition to themed activities and a cash bar with beer, wine and some magic-looking cocktails, the museum’s café will be open with numerous entrée and snack options.
SMO 21, the museum’s adults-only, after-hours program for ages 21 and up, is a chance for adults to explore SMO without children in tow.
