What you missed at Door 19: Renais-Science Faire

The Academy hosted our first Door 19 event of the year last Thursday. The Renaissance Faire themed event saw attendees witness a kraken dissection, take behind-the-scenes tours in our Ichthyology Collection as well as our Library and Archives, meet some of our live animals, enjoy an open bar and more!

The next installment of our 21+ event is on Thursday, April 11 when we’ll host Door 19: Clams Casino Royale. We’ll have tons of tasty food from 12th Street Catering, an open bar, exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of our Malacology and Ornithology Collections, live jazz, and entertaining activities all evening.
