Summer Thursdays

This summer, the Museum's Charles Hayden Planetarium is the place to be for groundbreaking, innovative nightlife! Every Thursday night, the dome lights up with exciting, one-of-a-kind new collaborations, performances, film screenings, and more!

On the first Thursday of each month, experience sci-fi classics in the stars. Second Thursdays invite you to test your knowledge with the ultimate trivia experience, The Big Quiz Thing. Third Thursdays, experience some of Boston's best bands as they perform live under the dome. And on the fourth Thursday, take comedy to the next level and enjoy a collaboration with local favorite ImprovBoston. (Plus, join us on the fifth Thursday of both June and August for two special movie marathons of two classic sci-fi series!)

All Summer Thursdays programs are intended for audiences 18+.
