The Gaithersburg Community Museum is putting a new twist on nightlife in Gaithersburg with its After Hours program. With its doors open after the sun sets, visitors can enjoy the Museum in a whole new way with insightful presentations and lively discussion with local historians, authors & scientists. All programs are held in the Museum’s historic 1953 RDC railcar.

“While we welcome visitors of all ages, we wanted to open our doors after hours and let the adults geek out with interesting topics and programs just for them,” says Program Coordinator Karen Lottes. “Many of the events provide the opportunity to hang out with friends and enjoy whiskey, beer or tea tastings prior to the discussion.”

Pre-registration is required unless otherwise indicated. ID required for alcohol tastings. Registration opens on November 5. Contact the Community Museum for information and registration.

Tastings start at 7 p.m. Talks begin at 7:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted.
$10 per person.
