Summer Thursdays: ImprovBoston

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 fourth Thursday of June, July, and August, the Museum of Science teams up with ImprovBoston for a completely improvised adult comedy show that's out of this world. New England's oldest and biggest comedy theater brings its signature off-the-cuff laughs to the far reaches of the galaxy with the expert technological wizardry of the Charles Hayden Planetarium. Immersive science meets immersive comedy as ImprovBoston's professional improvisers create games, scenes, and songs out of thin air using the Planetarium's state-of-the-art projections, surround sound and 360-degree videos.

Art and science collide in a never-before-seen supernova of gut laughs… and you have a front row seat. For ImprovBoston and the Museum of Science, all the universe is a stage!

All Summer Thursdays programs are intended for audiences 18+.
