California Academy of Sciences
Jun 1, 2017

If you’re going to San Francisco…what better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love than a party in the heart of Golden Gate Park? Just blocks away from the Haight Street epicenter of this historic cultural celebration, NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences will host a night of psychedelic science. Hear from local experts on the science of love and the colorful history of Golden Gate Park. Feeling groovy? Learn about the chemistry behind psychedelics and their mind-bending effects on the human brain. Plus, make peace (and crafts!) as you fashion your very own flower crown. Then, get schooled on scientific breakthroughs of the 1960s, and learn how groundbreaking innovations in space and technology left an indelible mark in the world of science. And of course, hear the sounds of the 60s with live music and DJs playing a mix of vintage rock, psychedelic, and folk throughout the museum. As you take in 38,000 live animals, watch jellyfish float, rays cruise, and butterflies flutter—all with an era-appropriate cocktail in hand. Stay tuned for more opportunities to enjoy live outdoor concerts this season during NightLife LIVE, the Academy’s summer music series.
