Summer Thursdays: Drag

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.

Boston's best Drag Queens and Kings will take over the Planetarium every second Thursday of the month, all summer long for an incredible, never-before-seen fusion of drag and fulldome visuals!

Come early to enjoy a cash bar and complimentary light snacks before the show, starting at 6:30pm in the Planetarium lobby!

All Summer Thursdays programs are for audiences 18+.
