Knock twice and whisper the secret password before entering the 2017 Dinosaur Ball, which will be themed as a quintessentially hip downtown L.A. urban speakeasy where urban meets nature in our Museum garden setting.  

Handcrafted cocktails and delectable appetizers will be served in the Grand Foyer and the Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Oschin and Family African Mammal Hall to black-tie-clad guests ready to revel.  Relax amid conversational lounges and discover pop-up presentations where NHMLA scientists will delight with their stories of adventure and science.

Inspired by the excitement of our inaugural farm-to-table dinner in the Nature Gardens in 2015, this year’s feast will again be served al fresco. Dressed in your best black-tie attire, you will dine under the stars in the Nature Gardens, a lush 3.5 acre habitat for urban nature.  Dinner décor will reflect an urban edge with Edison bulbs and copper finishes, juxtaposed with our garden oasis amid soaring Coast live oak trees and native shrubs. The stunning Erika J. Glazer Family Edible Garden will serve as a muse for our chef as he designs a special dinner for 600.

After dessert is served, you can grab a martini and dance the night away inside the Otis Booth Pavilion with the 65-foot skeleton of a fin whale above.  

Event proceeds will support the Museum’s new Urban Nature Research Center.
