Touch, smell, hear, taste, and feel your way through the museum for a California Academy of Science Nightlife that just makes sense.

What does craft and design feel like? Submerge yourself in the tactile world with MCD’s exhibition-inspired ‘touch tour’ and let your hands explore the texture, shape, size, and weight of museum-favorite materials by the bucket-full. Create your own tactile token! Choose a material to completely cover a keychain, inspired by the surface treatment of MCD’s featured artist, Iris Eichenberg.

Activity FREE with NightLife admission, while supplies last • for adults 21+
