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!


General admission:

$14 at the door
Get in FREE as a Museum Member—memberships start at just $35!
Advance tickets are no longer available as of 7 p.m. There will be a limited amount of walk-in tickets available onsite, both for Museum members and the general public, starting at 7 p.m.

Please continue to check the MAM After Dark Facebook event for the most up-to-date information, in case we have to close the doors due to a sell-out event situation.

Evening events:

  • Wild Card Tour: Take a trip down memory lane on a tour of hometown favorites in the Museum’s Collection.
  • Take a break from dancing for Quizmasters’ Team Trivia in Cafe Calatrava (reservations recommended).
  • Redo your high school homecoming portraits–and capture a few less awkward photos–in the Front Room photo booth.
  • Score prizes for completing a zoom-in scavenger hunt through the galleries
  • And so much more!
