  5. Where do I park?

    Event valet is complimentary and is accessible from Field Street (see below map).
    If you prefer to self-park, you may do so in the Museum’s lot underneath Woodall Rodgers. Valet hang tags for you and your guests will be emailed around November, if you’d like to use them, but are not required to park.

  6. Do you have a coat check?

    Of course we do – no need to cover that outfit all evening! The coat check is just inside the main entrance. Also, you may check your heels in exchange for a comfortable pair of complimentary flats in the main lobby beginning at 8:30pm.

    You may call the Development Office at 214.756.5808.

  11. Do I need tickets for my guests?

    No, we want this event to be as hassle free as possible! Your name and the names of your guests will be on a list at check in. Haven’t told us who you’re bringing yet? Email us at NightAtTheMuseum@perotmuseum.org.

  12. What happens at the party?

    The better question is: what ISN’T happening? We’ve got a fantastic evening planned where we’ve pulled out all the stops. There is an invitation-only Pre-Party (for packages $12,500 and above) from 6-7pm on the Lower Level. The Main Party is from 7-9pm and takes place throughout the Museum. Guests are welcome to explore the Museum’s exhibit halls, filled with new and exciting interactive experiences that correspond to this year’s theme. Guests are also invited to see the Perot Museum’s temporary exhibition. Additionally, there will be culinary treats and fabulous cocktails and bars on every floor. The After Party is from 9pm-midnight where you can rock the night away in the Main Lobby and includes a live party band, late night snacks, dancing, and more!

All proceeds support the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and its mission to inspire minds through nature and science. Your donation is non-refundable. In the rare event that the gala is canceled, the Museum will consider your gift 100% tax-deductible.
