Aurora Museums After Dark welcomes visitors to downtown museums after hours on three Thursdays this summer.
Aurora Regional Fire Museum, SciTech Hands On Museum, Grand Army of the Republic Museum, David L. Pierce Art and History Center, and Santori Public Library stay open for an extra few hours for families to enjoy on June 13, July 11, and August 8.
The museums are open from 5 to 8 p.m. for Aurora Museums After Dark. Admission is free. Free trolley rides are part of the evening.
The downtown museums highlight STEAM activities for all ages. Families are encouraged to pick up a museum passport and have it stamped at the locations they visit. Passports with three or more stamps will be entered into a raffle for a museum membership and prize totes.
Aurora Museums After Dark is sponsored by Aurora Downtown, a non-profit organization of downtown business and property owners within Special Service Area #One.
