History After Dark
Nightclub at the Museum: Boater Ball
Thu, May 14, 2020 | 7-9 pm | $30 ($25, Members and Young Friends)


For generations, mid-May was the time men switched from their heavier winter hats to their straw boater hats. So cast off your cold-weather gear and dive into spring as you trip the light fantastic with Dandy Wellington and his jazz band. Also on tap: a cocktail bar and a photo booth. Ages 21 +; two drink tickets per person
