“NightLife” at California Academy of Sciences | Thursdays

At NightLife, smart revelers receive special discounted evening admission to the California Academy of Sciences on Thursday evenings with unique special events each week.

  • Thursdays from 6-10 pm
  • Tickets are usually $15 with certain weeks being $20
  • Last entry is 9 pm. 21+ with valid ID.

NightLife celebrates the best of the Academy with an evening of after hours science and the premiere of Vortex 2.0, an art and music experience in the planetarium created just for NightLife.

  • Featuring new work from artists Bedtimes (with music by Shigeto), Chase Hochstatter, Peter Clark, Tim Digulla, and Can Buyukberber, Vortex 2.0 is an immersive journey to trippy, beautiful, and imaginary science-inspired worlds, plus a tribute to the 60th anniversary of the original Morrison Planetarium Vortex shows.
  • Get a sneak peek at the future of visualizations and VR with on-site demos from NVIDIA, which is helping with several Academy projects, including the upcoming coral reef planetarium show and our nature ID app, iNaturalist.
  • Gain a new appreciation of insects when their staff entomologists show off some of their favorite moths, beetles, and more from the Academy’s vast collection.
  • Finally, learn all about their popular albino American alligator, Claude, at an evening Swamp Talk.

Music by DJ Magic Touch and Matt McDermott
