Cut a rug and welcome in the ’20s at After Hours! To celebrate our 93rd Birthday, we’re going all out with a Roaring ’20s Birthday Bash! 

Every third Friday, the Museum will be open until 10 pm. Each After Hours event comes alive with an eclectic mix of music, performances, cash bar + food available by Wiltshire at the Speed, and of course art! Come experience the Speed after hours like you’ve never experienced it before.
