The Bruce Museum’s Night at the Museum

GREENWICH, CT, October 6, 2015 – The Bruce Museum’s annual family benefit will celebrate the Museum’s current science exhibition Madagascar: Ghosts of the Past, and will be held at the Museum Friday evening, November 6, from 5 to 8 pm.

Guests are invited to come to the Bruce dressed in their pajamas for the Night at the Museum event.  The original Madagascar movie will be shown on the big screen in the Museum’s Lecture Gallery, and crafts, a scavenger hunt, pizza and dessert will be offered.  A silent auction and open beer and wine bar will be available for Mom and Dad.

“The family benefit is always a favorite for us,” says Jen Bernstein, the Bruce Museum’s Special Events Manager. “It’s nice to see families enjoying the Museum in ways they wouldn’t during normal visiting hours.”

This year, in addition to celebrating theMadagascar exhibition, the event has the added attraction of taking place while the Museum will be showcasing the work of Bjørn Okholm Skaarup, a Danish sculptor.  Skaarup’s bronze animals offer a whimsical story or allegory to decipher, inspired by ancient fables, art history, or modern animation,and are sure to delight children of all ages.

Proceeds from the event will benefit children’s education and scholarship programs at the Bruce Museum.  Tickets start at $85 per adult ($95 at the door), and $25 per child over age 3 ($35 at the door). Packages are also available and offer special benefits, such as complimentary Bruce Museum memberships and private tours of Museum exhibitions and local private art collections.
