MAM After Dark: Grown-Up Homecoming

Fri, September 21, 7–11 PM

Break out your old sparkly pumps and clip-on neckties–or simply enjoy an evening of dressing up–because we are taking you back to homecoming! To kick-off the Museum’s Season of Home, September is packed full of nostalgia. Dust off some taffeta or a cummerbund. Grab your friends or bring a date for a night of throwback music, dancing, tasty treats, and libations–it’s all the fun of a homecoming dance, without the parent chaperones!

Advance tickets: $12 (+ fees)

(Advance Member tickets available online with donor id; number allotted depends on your membership level: Dual/Family = 2, Individual/Student = 1. Member must be present at check-in.)
