Ring in the New Year at Discovery Lab! Strut your stuff down the lime green carpet, and dance the day away with music and entertainment. Hands-on activities include create-your-own noisemakers and New Year’s hats. We will count down to noon and drop nearly 8,000 balloons from Discovery Lab’s lime-green ceiling to ring in the noon year!

Every year Noon Year’s Eve is a sell-out event. Museum members receive the first dibs on tickets during our members-only pre-sale. Tickets and additional information coming soon!
