The McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture will host its second Boomsday party at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 6.

“A Night at the Museum” is a fundraiser for the McClung Museum’s education outreach programs. Attendees will enjoy guaranteed on-site parking, farm-to-table dinner stations, cocktails, and live music. This year’s event will also include expert handwriting analysis and a silent auction.

Dinner and cocktail stations will be set up throughout the galleries. Guests may roam the various museum exhibitions before proceeding to a tented private viewing area on the bridge between Andy Holt Tower and the Communications Building to enjoy dessert stations and a spectacular view of the fireworks show.

This exclusive event is limited to just 200 guests. Tickets are $200 a person (a portion of which is tax deductible) and can be purchased on the museum’s website or by calling 865-974-2143. US Bank’s Private Client Group is the presenting sponsor for the event. Other sponsors include WUOT.
