Summer Thursdays

Summer Thursdays are BACK at the Museum of Science! After taking Boston nightlife to exciting new levels last year, the series returns to the Charles Hayden Planetarium with an all-new groundbreaking lineup of innovative nightlife! Every Thursday night, the dome will light up with one-of-a-kind new collaborations, performances, film screenings, and more.

On the First Thursday each month, take theater to the next level and enjoy a collaboration with local favorites, Liars & Believers. Second Thursdays, Boston's best Drag Queens and Kings take over the Planetarium in a never-before-seen fusion of drag and fulldome visuals. Third Thursdays, experience some of Boston's best live music with intimate and immersive live performances under the dome. Fourth Thursdays, experience sci-fi space classics in the stars. Join us on Thursdays all summer long, only at the Museum of Science!

All Summer Thursdays programs are for audiences 18+.
