A Valentine’s Day Evening Event

Romancing the Stone

Give your sweetheart more than just a dinner date this year. Instead, spend Valentine’s Day at a gem-themed celebration of love at the Museum!

February 14, 7-11pm

Bring a date to this 21+ evening featuring gems and minerals with fun activities focused on romantic jewels, love, and attraction. Including the chance for you and your date to crack a geode together to revel a never-before-seen interior, an opportunity to create your own “Love Potion” fragrance, and other fun and scientific activities. There will be plenty of celebrating with a DJ and dance floor, 360 photo booth, food stations, and more.
