Museum@Night: Counterculture Series, March 29, April 26, and May 31, 2019 

Join us for three uniquely themed Museum@Night events and indulge your curiosity! All Museum@Night events feature entertainment, themed snacks, cash bar, and interactive activities:

March 29: 70s Throwback  Our DJ will be playing your favourite 70s tunes while you “dance” around the museum hunting for answers to what Brockville was really like in the 1970s. We’ll also have 70s board games and toys, as well as make-your-own macramé and pet rock stations!  Prizes for the best 1970s attire will be awarded!

April 26: Steampunk Invasion  Our popular History or Hearsay event is taking on a Steampunk theme: find out what happens when modern technology takes on the Victorian period and decide which object label is true, and which is pure fiction.  We’ll also have a make-your-own steampunk accessory station and live Steampunk art demonstrations.  Prizes for best Steampunk attire will be awarded!

May 31: Inked  Got a tattoo?  Or are you curious about the art, ink, history, or process?  Someone is getting inked live while you explore the travelling "My Story, My Tattoo" exhibit and try your hand at the art, or surprise your friends by sharing photos of your (temporary) tattoo at our photo booth.

All events kick off at 7 pm.  Get a great deal by purchasing your tickets in advance - all three nights for only $30 per person or $12 for individual nights (to be purchased by noon the Wednesday prior) or $15 at the door. Tickets are available through the Brockville Arts Centre box office or at the door.
