Cool Summer Nights: Music Night

July 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm - Free

The final Cool Summer Nights will take inspiration from Austin’s thriving music culture and the Museum’s exhibition celebrating the history of Austin City Limits. Guests can pick up a ukulele and experiment, experience contemporary opera or try their hand at song writing.

Cool Summer Nights lets you discover Museum content in a social and comfortable atmosphere. Whether coming in work clothes straight from the office, enjoying the atmosphere before heading to dinner, or capping off a day spent exploring the city, Cool Summer Nights will give you the freedom to engage and explore the Museum at your own pace and on your own terms.

Each Cool Summer Nights event includes:
