Friday Nights at the de Young is a free after-hours art “happening” in the museum’s public spaces.

The event has a new theme every time, but typically includes an eclectic mix of live music, dance performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demos, hands-on art activities, and more. Plus, the observation tower is open until 8 pm.

There’s also Free Museum Admission during Friday Nights at the de Young which includes access to the permanent collection galleries (Please note that access to any special exhibitions require a separate paid ticket)

Please note that Friday Nights at the de Young in the past has been weekly during the Spring and Summer, but that things may change in 2018.
