“NightLife” at California Academy of Sciences | Thursdays
What better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love than a party in the heart of Golden Gate Park?
Just blocks away from the Haight Street epicenter of this historic cultural celebration, NightLife will host a night of psychedelic science.
- Hear from local experts Robert Lawrence, Carol Queen, and Joel Selvin about the colorful history of Golden Gate Park and the cultural contributions that put free love on the map.
- Feeling groovy? Immerse yourself in the history of San Francisco’s legendary music venue, The Fillmore.
- Learn about the chemistry behind psychedelics and their mind-bending effects on the human brain. Plus, make peace (and crafts) as you create dreamy marbled patterns of your own.
Then, get schooled on scientific breakthroughs of the 1960s, and learn how groundbreaking innovations in space and technology left an indelible mark in the world of science.
