Cool Summer Nights will kick off with a salute to rodeos, stock shows, and all things western in celebration of Rodeo! The Exhibition. The Museum’s lobby will become a dance floor complete with lessons for the untrained. Guests can also try their hand at leather craft or create the perfect spice blend to make chili.
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.
