Unlock the secrets of the universe and find out why Space Is the Place during the last Evenings at The Bakken event of the year! This after-hours, adults-only celebration of World Space Week features craft cocktails and cool treats and is perfect for those who are curious about the cosmos. Act like an awe-struck kid again with hands-on fun like tiny comet-making, painting your own Aurora Borealis, building a Super Sound Cone to listen to stellar sounds just like NASA’s big satellites, and crafting a tiny constellation to take home and put up on your ceiling for some indoor stargazing. Then take a virtual tour of the galaxy with Minneapolis-based virtual reality company Visual VR, try space-age treats, get space suit fashion tips from the University of Minnesota’s Wearable Technology Lab, grab a snack from one of the visiting food vendors and sip on a craft beer, wine or a signature cocktail as you explore the museum.
