Science Museum Oklahoma visitors will be able to explore the science of solving crimes from 6 to 10 p.m. Feb. 7 during the museum's next sensory-friendly family night out, "Late Nite Lab: Crime Scene Investigation."

“Many of us are captivated by the work of investigators and all that goes into solving crimes. There’s so much science in the work of detectives and their counterparts in the crime lab," said Greg Miller, director of education and training for the museum, 2020 Remington Place. "This Late Nite Lab will have fascinating hands-on experiences just like you might find at the scene of a crime and back in the laboratory once all of the evidence has been collected.”

The evening of intrigue will include fingerprinting, DNA extraction, blood typing, and creating codes and secret messages as families work together to learn the science behind solving crimes alongside museum educators.

Museum members will receive one free child admission with the purchase of an adult admission, with up to three free child tickets. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children ages 3 and older, and children younger than 3 are admitted for free. Ticket sales will end at 7 p.m. on the day of the event.

The museum’s Late Nite Labs are not exclusively for families with children with sensory processing disorders. They are also sensory-friendly evenings ideal for a family that wants a quieter experience than may be available during a typical day at the museum.

In addition to themed activities, the full museum will be open and include shows in the museum’s Kirkpatrick Planetarium at 7 and 8 p.m. and a Science Live show at 9 p.m. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis for all shows.
