Maybe you've experienced Denver's world-class museums by day. But have you discovered what's happening after hours? Some of the city's greatest attractions host extremely fun nighttime events that will make you re-think what a museum can be. [Note: Most are 21+ events]

"UNTITLED" CREATIVE FUSIONS AT DENVER ART MUSEUM 

WHEN: TBA 2021
WHERE: Online
COST: Included with general admission, free for members, college students with valid ID receive 2-for-1 admission 

Expect the unexpected at Denver Art Museum's Untitled events! These are witty, irreverent events, and each one is completely artist-designed, artist-delivered and radically different from the last. Get an offbeat art fix, pick up a creative skill, take in an unexpected performance and mix and mingle with local movers and makers. Top it off with a cash bar, munchies and a dose of pure whimsy and you've got an artful night out.

FRIDAY EVENING HOURS AT DENVER MUSEUM OF NATURE & SCIENCE 

WHEN: Most Fridays, 5–9 p.m. 
WHERE: Denver Museum of Nature & Science
COST: Free with museum admission (always free for members)

New for 2020, The Denver Museum of Nature & Science will stay open late every Friday evening so you can explore the exhibits after dark — and after work. Tickets for temporary exhibitions, IMAX films (5 and 6 p.m.) and the Hollywood Favorites film series will be available for purchase, as will food and drink.

EVENINGS AL FRESCO AT DENVER BOTANIC GARDENS

WHEN: Select Mondays and Wednesdays, June–August, 4:30–8:30 p.m.
WHERE: Denver Botanic Gardens
COST: $30 (non-members), $20 (members) 

Head to the urban oasis that is Denver Botanic Gardens for Evenings al Fresco: socially distanced performances on select Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:30–8:30 p.m., June through August. Unlike a traditional concert setting, visitors strolling through the Gardens encounter small ensembles or musicians performing works designed to underscore and bring delight to their evening visit. Timed tickets must be purchased in advance; tickets are limited in each 30-minute time slot.
 

DENVER BOTANIC GARDENS SUMMER CONCERT SERIES

WHEN: June–August
WHERE: Denver Botanic Gardens
COST: Varies

Every summer, Denver Botanic Gardens features a wildly popular Summer Concert Series. The lawns surrounding the stage are general admission, so bring a blanket or lawn chair along with a bottle of wine and a picnic dinner and enjoy the great music in an unparalleled setting. Word to the wise: Virtually all Botanic Gardens concerts sell out — so get your tickets early! 

This year's concert series is canceled. Please check back for the 2022 schedule. 

 

RAINFOREST YOGA AT THE BUTTERFLY PAVILION

Stretch, breathe and relax in a rainforest in the middle of Colorado, surrounded by exotic plants and beautiful butterflies. Rainforest Yoga at the Butterfly Pavilion provides a fun and unique environment for unwinding and de-stressing. Pre-register online.
