What if I'm really really thirsty before the event?

We have happy hour up in the cafe from 5–7PM. You're welcome to grab a drink before the talk begins and bring it down to the Whole Room.

Can I check out the galleries after the talk?

Unfortunately, the galleries will close at 7PM when the talk begins. You are welcome to bring your talk ticket back for free admission to the museum within a month after the talk.
