Museum Discovery Evening

FREE Museum Discovery Evening

  • Date: 09/06/2019 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM  
  • Location: Arizona Museum of Natural History
    53 N. Macdonald
    Mesa, Arizona 85201
  • Introduction: Yes FREE for everyone who visits us during that time. It's the perfect time to meet our new tyrannosaur!
Two family-friendly museums in Downtown Mesa – the Arizona Museum of Natural History and the i.d.e.a. Museum – will offer free admission 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6, as part of the City of Mesa’s Museum Discovery series.

Complimentary access is part of a move toward offering Museum Discovery events on select days or evenings by City of Mesa cultural institutions. These free days and evening events are aimed at making science, art and hands-on activities accessible to families of all economic backgrounds.

Free days are very popular and attract crowds. If a museum nears visitor capacity, the staff at that museum may implement timed tickets at the door on a first-come, first-served basis to better serve guests. The timed tickets are instituted to make sure that we keep under the building capacity and that everyone who receives a ticket will be guaranteed entrance to the museum.No advanced tickets will be distributed.
