Mobile MakeArt: CalAcademy NightLife

August 26, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Off-Site @ CalAcademy at 55 Music Concourse Drive San Francisco

NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences is back and calling all creatures of the night! 

MCD returns to the nocturnal fun for Arts + Crafts Night, where participants can use an array of Mode Brut inspired materials and techniques to customize a super trendy bucket hat! Reserve your NightLife tickets in advance and see what’s revealed once the sun goes down. Reconnect with favorite faces (we’re looking at you, Claude!) while exploring new and familiar spaces. 

With nearly 40,000 live animals, two new exhibits, the iconic Shake House and four-story Rainforest, and outdoor dining beneath the stars the night is sure to be wild.

All NightLife guests must reserve timed-entry tickets online in advance. Please visit the California Academy of Sciences reopening page for more information about ticketing, health and safety, exhibits, and FAQs.

Please note that the last entry into the rainforest exhibit is 7:30 pm—their animals need their sleep!
