Bright Night of Arrrg to Take Place at Science Museum Oklahoma May 20
By Tourism Industry Partner
OKLAHOMA CITY – Science Museum Oklahoma has some really good advice for avoiding scurvy, but it’s not telling until May 20. It’s all part of the Bright Night of Arrrgh, an all night science-sleepover that includes a trip to the midnight premiere of the new Pirates of the Caribbean film.
“One of the most common questions I get is what to bring to any of our Bright Nights and for this one my answer is a little different,” said Drew Smith, Bright Nights coordinator at Science Museum Oklahoma. “Bring your best pirate accent and bring anything that would help with all night swashbuckling, but most of all bring your thinking hat. We’re going to fight scurvy, spend the rest of the night meddling with science and cap it all off as we find the fountain of youth during the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie – it’s shaping up to be a busy night.”
The Bright Night of Arrrgh will take place May 20, starts at 6:00 p.m. and goes until 8:30 a.m. The all night event will have guests sleeping in all parts of the museum so while sleeping bags aren’t required, they are a big help. Hands-on science experiments will be setup that are completely unique to the event, and at midnight guests will be whisked away to a midnight showing of the new Pirates of the Caribbean film
“I have often been mistaken for Johnny Depp, so I can’t overstate my excitement at getting to go to the midnight premiere of the new Pirates film,” said Chris Wilkerson, science programs coordinator at Science Museum Oklahoma. “In all seriousness this is the type of event that gives parents a chance to see their child interact with science in a completely different way than they might be used to – a fun way.”
