Friday, it can be said convincingly, is the most spellbinding day of the week.
And the most ethereal hours? We will vote on the hour just before sunset, the Golden Hour, the magical moment when the week turns into a weekend.
How to best celebrate this sun-star event the best of every day of the week? A walk in the garden, something nice to sip and some music from the DJ providing the lively soundtrack, feel perfectly good on a summer night.
The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is the perfect place to experience all of these warm weather delights on Friday nights, starting July 9, 2021.
But wait: like sunset itself, those extended Friday hours will come to an end, and sooner than you might think. There will be five Fridays in total in the 2021 series, with the last blooming on August 6.
The NHM Grill will be the place to buy meals and drinks, there will be hands-on activities for families to participate in, and should you want to wander inside?
Sweet: The first floor will remain open during the event from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
This means you can commune with the colossal dinosaurs on display, stroll through the diorama rooms, and also admire a pair of exhibits (these would be “Spiky, Hairy, Shiny: Insects of LA” and “Rise Up LA: A History. votes for women “).
You don’t need to buy your timed ticket in advance, but you will need a ticket. And here’s something that seems just as powerful on Fridays: If you live in Los Angeles County, you can arrive early and visit the museum for free, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Of course, you’ll need a ticket once the Friday night events begin.
You can check out the DJ schedule here (Chulita Vinyl Club is on the decks the first two Fridays of the series), and other details on this Golden Hour Lark, a wonderful way to end the week, see science exhibits, and soak up you also have the magnificent gardens of the Natural History Museum.
