If you haven’t been to the Canadian Museum of Nature for Nature Nocturne, you need to mark the next night on your calendars right now. I’m serious. Nature Nocturne is a monthly 19+ event that lets you drink and dance the night away under a giant glowing jellyfish. If dance floors aren’t where you want to spend your entire night or if you need a quick break from the music don’t fret. They have loads of other activities and you're free to wander between floors to learn from and take pictures with the great exhibits the museum offers. Dress code ranges from semi formal to casual. What to wear is completely up to you and what you feel comfortable dancing in.
March’s event was called Dig your Inner Dino and true to its name there was loads of dinosaur themed activities. Guests got to dig real fossils, play a game to avoid extinction, have a dino themed caricature drawn, and a giant T-Rex prowled the night. There was also a MECHANICAL DINOSAUR RIDE which was hands down the highlight of my night. Staying on one of those things is a lot harder than it looks and nylons did not make the task any easier. I also opted to visit the Butterflies in Flight exhibit. For only an extra $5 you got a timed ticket to enter the butterfly conservatory and watch butterflies take flight all around you. If you were lucky enough, they would land on your shoulder or on your hair and you could get a dope selfie. Check out some pictures from the night out below!
The next night out is called Harmony and it will take place on April 27th from 8pm to midnight. Warm up your singing voices because there is going to be karaoke! Tickets are $25 (tax included) and available for purchase HERE.
