First Fridays Previous Seasons

Over the past decade, First Fridays has introduced young and adult audiences to both the Museum, and a new kind of museum experience. Contemporary science, culture, and individual experience converge during these after-hours events. Accessible, relevant discussions and tours unfold; there are taste-making live performances by musicians, bands, and DJs; and the whole of the museum is open to explore, often with pop-up performances and surprises in both its historic halls and its brand-new exhibitions.

Pictures from past events can be found on the NHMLA Flickr page.
