A (naughty) night at the museum

After dark the Royal BC Museum will open its doors for a special adult-only event on Valentine's Day

Explore the naughty side of nature this Valentine’s Day at the Royal B.C. Museum.

After dark the Royal BC Museum will open its doors for a special adult-only event, Night Shift: Wild Romance, where guests will learn about some of the more colourful mating rituals of the animal kingdom.

Guests will be treated to fun and interesting activities, such as Sex Talks with Scientists, snuggle spots and a number of stations with hands-on activities – and in the case of the pheromone station, a nose-on activity.

There will be two live performances, one by the improv-poetry duo SpeakEasy, who will perform spoken word pieces to celebrate the naughty side of nature, and another by Dance Messenger Madoka, who will interpret love and sex in the animal kingdom through a hip-hop dance performance.

The evening ends in the IMAX theatre with a screening of Isabella Rossellini’s hilarious and critically acclaimed short-film series Green Porno, in which Rossellini acts out the reproductive habits of marine animals and insects.

This romantic night at the Royal B.C. Museum will also include sweet and savoury hors d’oeuvres from Truffles Catering and a cash bar, as well as take home treats, including a “wild” photograph from the evening and an original make-your-own valentine.

Night Shift: Wild Romance is Feb. 14 from 8 to 11 p.m.

Tickets are $30 each and available online at royalbcmuseum.ca or at the Royal BC Museum box office.
