It’s time for a color explosion! Come dressed in your most lavish colors to take part in a celebration that would put a peacock to shame. This is the perfect Friday night for families with children ages 5 to 12.

Explore The Color of Style, our newest experience that's all about color and how it inspires clothing and what you wear. Then head over to Cardboard Engineering where you can make your own wearable fashion out of cardboard.

Grab a slingshot and some paintballs to help us create a colorful mural on the museum’s front lawn (weather permitting), or join us in the Great Hall to help us add bold touches with spray chalk to a giant canvas—we hope you don’t mind your clothes getting a little messy! Create your own works of art to take home by using soap and watercolors, as well as a paint pendulum.

In our Creativity Studio, your imagination will run wild as you design carnival hats, make a beautiful tissue paper stained glass masterpiece, and create a whole new you by outlining and decorating your shadow.
