Bostonians get a chance to relive their childhood when the Boston Children's Museum has a special "Boston Grown-Ups Museum" night. Leave the kids at home with a babysitter and come out to play. On Apr. 9, 2014 after 6 PM, this kid's zone becomes 21+ only. Featured activities include a sculptural maze that you can climb, giant bubble blowing, building forts, art and music exhibits, interactive displays, and of course you'll always wind up in the museum shop. What could make this better? Beer and wine will be available at the cash bar.

Since the museum is meant to be enjoyed primarily by children, what kind of art can you expect to see here? Interactive art is ideal for children and adults can appreciate it, too. Wrenford Thaffe's "Animal Motion Park" exhibits kinetic sculptures dedicated to the movement of animals. The artist uses found materials to create these fusions of art and science. The Collections Manager Rachel Farkas boasts “Wrenford’s work embodies so many learning goals here at the Museum—art, science, engineering, recycling, and more. It is the perfect show for our Gallery to see these forces united.”

Tickets are $25 and nearly sold out. You can purchase tickets here.
