SOLD OUT - Thank You!

A Night at the Museum will be held throughout the Museum, including cocktails in the Living Gallery of Aquariums and dinner in The Great Hall of Shells with its soaring 30-foot ceiling and artful original windows by Luc Century.

Attendees will enjoy an evening of camaraderie and community, live music during cocktails by Danny Morgan and Amy Sbarra, and a delicious dinner catered by Artichoke & Co. An exciting auction of original items and experiences and a paddle raise will comprise part of the dinner program.

The evening celebrates and raises funds for the Museum. As we reopen in phases to visitors in early 2024, major new additions and improvements to the permanent exhibit galleries will transform and enhance the educational and visitor experience. A Night at the Museum supports the final stages of rebuilding and is also an investment in the future of the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum & Aquarium. 

Your support is appreciated and impactful now more than ever!
