Life at the Limits: Trivia Night
May 29, 2015
Round up your geekiest friends and stretch your brain to its "limits" in an after-hours trivia night held under the blue whale. Come with your own team or join up with others and test your science trivia knowledge in a pub-style game that uses the new exhibition Life at the Limits as its inspiration. No clue? No problem—if you manage to win a lifeline to one of the scientists we're placing strategically around the room. Television personality Faith Salie hosts this rousing soirée, and winners will take home exciting giveaways, including tickets to the Museum's Adult Sleepovers!
Your ticket includes one free drink and private access to the Life at the Limits exhibition. Special exhibition access is available to ticket holders one hour prior to the program, from 6 to 7 pm.
Presented in collaboration with World Science Festival.
The Museum gratefully acknowledges the Richard and Karen LeFrak Exhibition and Education Fund.

Life at the Limits is proudly supported by Chase Private Client.
