Night at the Museum 2024 logo header



Promising an evening of show-stopping surprises, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science’s annual fundraising gala, Night at the Museum, returns Saturday, November 9, 2024. An extravagant night of exploration and engaging experiences, exquisite food, and enticing cocktails, the evening will help further launch the Museum into its second decade of education and inspiration. Longtime Perot Museum supporters Pam and Mark Okada will serve as Night at the Museum event chairs.

All proceeds from the event enable the Museum to expand its reach by providing scholarships and financial assistance to schools and families, making the Museum more welcoming and inclusive.

Join us at this year’s Night at the Museum!

Limited space is available.
