The week is finally coming to a close. From parties to Earth Day fun, we have you covered for the weekend!
Can’t find any events you’re interested in, or want to find some events for the rest of the week? Our Event Calendar has plenty of options for you!
The next LSC After Dark party on April 20 from 6:00 to 10:00 pm, is “Freak Show!” Bring your friends to Liberty Science Center for drinks, food, music, dancing, laser shows, and more!
You’re invited to join us as we celebrate everything bizarre and unreal. Grab a drink and get ready for some mysteries, oddities, and curious characters who defy the laws of nature. You can also browse through offbeat art, jewelry, and gifts courtesy of the Jersey City Oddities Market.
Find out what the human body is capable of (can someone really survive lying on a bed of nails?!), get freaky on the dance floor, and check out all the exhibits including the Touch Tunnel, Infinity Climber, and the mysterious new Illusion exhibit.
For just $6 more, you can also enjoy LSC’s premium exhibition, MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition.
There will be a $5 additional charge for all tickets purchased at the door on the night of the event.
