Identity at the Science Center
I’m glad the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History (1600 Gendy St., Cultural District) has come to the realization that not every adult in town has children and that by catering to children, the museum leaves out a lot of Fort Worthians. In addition to the museum’s monthly PUBlic Knowledge series, in which a local expert lectures on his or her area of expertise at a local watering hole (hence the “PUB”), and also the laser light shows set to rock music, the museum hosts an adult, after-hours affair about once every other month. The next one is on Saturday from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Identity: The Masquerade Ball will be “your chance to explore the museum without the kids while enjoying music, drinks, special guests, and hands-on activities,” the museum says. Costumes are encouraged. However, attendees will be able to make their own masks onsite. Attendees also will be able to have their handwriting and facial features analyzed, make commemorative screenprints, and learn about the stars once the sun sets as part of the museum’s Star Party outside, in addition to exploring the museum’s myriad exhibits, including Fort Worth Champions and Children of Hangzhou: Connecting with China. The Omni Theater and Noble Planetarium also will be open throughout the evening, showing assorted programs for additional fees. Tornado Alley and Tron: Legacy will be screening at the Omni, and Pink Floyd: The Best Of, Laser Music Variety Show, and Stellar CSI Live will be showing at the Noble. Admission to Identity: The Masquerade Ball is $10 per person for non-members, free for members. Only 18 and up. For more information, call 817-255-9300.
