The Franklin Institute’s Science After Hours is Back With Their Spooky Fright@Night Edition

The Franklin Institute (222 N 20th St.) is bringing back their popular Science After Hours for a special spooky Halloween edition. Science After Hours: Fright@Night is back by popular demand to kick off Halloween weekend on Friday, October 28th from 7:30 pm-11 pm. Tickets are now on sale, and costumes are highly encouraged for this frightful adult only bash that includes all access to TFI’s exhibits, six cash bars for haunting spirits and tasty bites, an event-exclusive limited-edition lapel pin, plus rooftop stargazing, and a lineup of bone-rattling performances guaranteed to deliver all the shocks, chills and gasps leaving guests howling for more. Included with admission are:

  • Extreme fire breathing, unusual sword swallowing, and other must-see sensational acts from Philly sideshow performer Mackenzie Moltov, alongside co-founders of the Squidling Brother’s Circus Sideshow Jelly Boy the Clown and Matterz Squidling, will take guests to the edge of their seats.
  • Guests can then deep dive into the evening’s sideshow acts when adventurer and physician author of “The Unseen Body” Dr. Johnathan Reisman and TFI’s Chief Bioscientist Dr. Jayatri Das take to the “That’s Gross!” stage.
  • The eerie and hypnotic sounds of concert thereminist Mano Divina will pulse through the museum as he bends electricity with his hands in an uncanny yet magical amalgamation of science and music.
  • Plus, dancing in the Fels Planetarium to the sounds of DJ Carl Michaels, Drag Bingo at the hands of Philly’s glamorous ghoul of drag, Onyx Ondyx, and live snakes with a collection of mysterious creatures, onsite courtesy of Rowan University.

Science After Hours takes place quarterly in April, June, October, and December, from 7:30 pm – 11 pm. Tickets are $40 in advance here; $45 at the door. Member tickets are $35. The event is for adults 21+ only. Costumes are encouraged; no full-face coverings or weapons for Science After Hours: Fright@Night.
