On Sunday, June 9, the Natural History Museum will celebrate its 100th birthday. There will be plenty to do during the day, but you don’t have to go home once the sun goes down.

After dark, Adam Steltzner of JPL will talk about the Mars Curiosity rover and the museum will put on a “spectacle of light and sound” in the brand new Otis Booth Pavilion, which houses the bones of a 63-foot fin whale.

You can roam the museum gardens and listen to DJs in the Mammal Halls, too. And if all that's not enough, you can also catch a live performance from DEVO.

Tickets are $25 for non-members and can be purchased through the Natural History Museum’s website.
