Knock 3.14159 times on Door 19 for admission to an oddly charming evening that will forever change how you think about science. Curated for the curious, Door 19 is quirky science meets themed soiree, set against a backdrop of live performances, music, potent libations, and dinosaurs.

For only four nights this year, you will have the chance to go beyond the galleries and into specimen collections off-limits to visitors, alongside experts who will bring our coolest specimens out to play. Our rogue scientists will go a little bit off script to share their most incredible knowledge—from prohibition-era mixology to dinosaur foreplay. You’ll be reminded that no, in fact, you haven’t seen it all—far from it.

The Mating Game
Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018
6–9 p.m.
In partnership with 8 Oaks Distillery and 12th St. Catering
Must be 21 or over to attend

All living things do it—but sometimes it seems that the wild kingdom does it a bit weirder than humans do. We’ll be featuring museum specimens and live animals to reveal unique courtship rituals, dinosaur foreplay, and other sexy secrets of the animal world.

— Warm up at our open bar featuring Eight Oaks Craft Distillers
— Sing, dance, or watch your friends attempt to imitate mating calls and courtship dances from the animal kingdom

— “Ask the Sexpert”—we know you want to!
— Take a seriously amazing behind-the-scenes tours of our sexiest collections with premium ticket purchase

— Eat great food from our exclusive caterer, 12th St. Catering
— Did we mention the open bar?

Premium Tickets are available for behind-the-scenes tours of our natural history collections featuring bodacious birds and those surprisingly sexy beasts, the diatoms. Tours start at 6 p.m. and are limited in space, so sign up early.
