Fernbank After Dark is a monthly series for ages 21+ featuring fun science activities, exclusive after-hours museum access, live music and a 3D giant screen movie. Cocktails, craft beer and small plates are available for purchase.

Flight Night

New format—tickets now include 3D movie admission!

7pm – 10pm

We’re taking science to the skies, from the evolution of flying reptiles to the physics of paper airplanes. Hands-on activities include “Fly Like a Pterosaur” exhibit interactive, a paper plane-making challenge, interactive demonstrations on air pressure and more. The evening will also include wine flights with Prime Wine and Spirits (additional cost).

7pm – 11pm

Take flight with the largest flying animals that ever lived in Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs. All permanent exhibits will be open for self-guided tours.

7:15pm, 8pm, 8:45pm, 9:30pm or 10:15pm

Join world-renowned naturalist David Attenborough for a closer look at pterosaurs, including their discovery, how they achieved flight and what might have led to their sudden disappearance in Flying Monsters 3D.

8pm – 9pm and 10pm – 11pm

Enjoy live music by Weisshund, a rock duo born from a raucous all-night, whiskey-fueled jam session. Rick Lollar (vocals, guitar) and Marlon Patton (drums, Moog bass pedals) focus on propulsive riffs and melodies, performing with the reckless abandon of a garage band.
