Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does the ticket price include alcohol and food?

    No. Alcohol and food can be purchased at an additional cost.

The Café and  bars accept cash and credit cards. Last call for the bars is at 10:15pm.

  • Does the ticket for the event include entrance to the traveling exhibition (if there is one)?

    No. The Social Science ticket only permits entrance to the event itself. If there is a traveling exhibition option, those tickets must be purchased in addition to the Social Science ticket. However, for your convenience, these tickets can be purchased as a combo package.

    Close
  • Do I have to arrive at 7pm?

    No. 7pm is the time the doors open and most activities begin, but there are lots of fun things happening throughout the night. The day of the event, we will send you a “Know Before You Go” email which will include the night’s schedule so you can plan your arrival time accordingly. Please note that some of the activities close at 10pm rather than the event ending time of 11pm.

    Close
  • Where can I park?

    The main Museum parking lot, located under Woodall Rodgers Freeway, is well-lit 24 hours a day. Once you park, there is a safe crosswalk to the north (away from downtown) that leads guests up the ramp towards the check-in for Social Science. Non-member parking in the Museum lot is $10 and member parking is $5. Social Science attendees can also take the DART train or any car service.

    Close
  • Is there a dress code?

    All we require is shirt, pants, and shoes. Feel free to get as dressed up as you want, or you can simply wear jeans and a t-shirt. Whatever makes you feel comfortable and ready to have some fun learning!

    Close
  • Do I have to be at least 21?

    Yes. This event is exclusively for those 21 and over. Upon arriving at Social Science, we will check your ID to ensure you are 21. Please make sure to have your ID ready upon arrival.

    Close
  • It appears tickets are sold out. Can I purchase tickets at the door?

    If tickets are sold out, we do NOT sell tickets at the door. We understand the frustration of not being able to purchase a ticket, but we strive to make these events enjoyable for all attendees by keeping the attendance at a specific number. When tickets for the upcoming Social Science sellout, tickets for the next Social Science event will go on sale and we encourage you to purchase those tickets as soon as possible.
