Come in costume and explore the mysteries of the Museum after dark. Imbibe cauldron-concocted cocktails, feast on freakish foods, and tour our taxidermy collection as scientists dissect and prepare specimens before your very eyes.  

Warning to the squeamish: students and staff from the Kenneth S. Norris Center for Natural History at UC Santa Cruz will perform “live” taxidermy demonstrations using specimens from their collections. If dissecting once-living creatures is not your cup of tea, rest assured, you can unwind in the company of the living in other areas of the Museum.

We are pleased to partner with TMB Taxidermy for this event! From jackalope-inspired opossums to squirrels with wings, Tracey Margaret Barrow creates surprising “fakery” out of ethically-sourced roadkill. She will display her fanciful, interpretive taxidermy while inviting questions about her artful process.
