Bruce Museum hosts annual Night at the Museum

The Bruce Museum will host its annual Night at the Museum event on Friday, Nov. 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. Children are invited to attend the event in their best pajamas for a night filled with arts and crafts, a scavenger hunt, pizza and dessert. Parents will be able to indulge in passed appetizers and an open wine and beer bar, and are welcome to participate in a silent auction with many unique items.

Local businesses partnering with the museum for the family benefit include Meli Melo, Planet Pizza, The Granola Bar, Little Pub, and Val’s Putnam Wines & Liquors.

“Night at the Museum is a fun family event that starts in the early evening. It’s delightful to watch children in pajamas exploring the Museum’s galleries with their families and enjoying food, entertainment, art-related activities and fun! It has been a sold-out event for several years,” said Whitney Lucas Rosenberg, Director of Development and Institutional Advancement.

During the event, guests will be able to view the Bruce’s current exhibitions including Her Crowd: New Art by Women from Our Neighbors’ Private Collections and Small Scales: Lands of Enchantment. Her Crowd offers the rare opportunity to see what some of America’s most influential collectors of contemporary art consider beautiful, important, and compelling. Small Scales explores the works of contemporary fine artists working in minute scales with a focus on the natural world — landscape, seascape, and microcosms of the imagination. Both exhibits are captivating for old and young alike.

Proceeds from Night at the Museum will benefit children’s education and scholarship programs at the Bruce Museum.

Tickets start at $85 per adult ($95 at the door), and $25 per child over the age of 3 ($35 at the door). Family packages are also available and offer special benefits, such as complimentary Bruce Museum memberships, private tours of exhibitions and local private art collections and a Bruce Museum blanket.
