Grown-ups can enjoy an evening at the Thinkery on their own. At Thinkery21 we close the museum to kids and let adults, ages 21 and up, eat, drink and mingle while experiencing innovative science, and art.

WARNING! This is not your average Thinkery event. From wafting the potent aroma of pheromones to dissecting vibrating toys, Thinkery21: Science of Sex explores the ins and outs of attraction, sex, and reproduction. Be prepared for the kind of “birds and bees” conversation your parents couldn’t bear to have with you.
