The MSU Museum is proud to announce an exciting new lineup of First Friday programs tailored specifically for college students. These engaging and interactive events are set to take place on the first Friday of each month, starting on October 6, and promise an unforgettable experience filled with mystery, celebrations, delicious food, games, and more.
The inaugural event, “Museum Mystery,” kicks off on Friday, October 6th, inviting attendees to don their detective hats, follow a trail of intriguing clues, and work together to unravel the secrets hidden within the Museum’s walls. The adventure doesn’t stop there; once the mystery is solved, participants can savor complimentary refreshments, win exciting prizes, and enjoy a mystery movie screening. With all three floors of the MSU Museum open for exploration, this promises to be a captivating evening of discovery.
“Our team at the MSU Museum has worked closely with students to craft these First Friday themes and activities, ensuring that they offer an immersive and engaging experience for our college community,” remarked Devon Akmon, Director of the MSU Museum.
As the months roll on, the First Fridays series will continue to enchant and ignite curiosity. In November, get ready for “Chills and Thrills” as the MSU Museum delves into the spine-tingling world of local ghost stories. With retro arcade games, delicious free refreshments, and spooky raffle prizes, this night promises thrills and chills for all. December brings a global celebration of traditions, featuring MSU students sharing their rich cultural heritage with food, music, dance, and more. Start the new year in style in January with a whimsical journey into the world of Willy Wonka, complete with golden ticket hunts, expert insights into sweet treat creation, and a delectable array of eccentric prizes and confectioneries.
All First Fridays events will be held at the MSU Museum from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. While admission is free, tickets are limited, so be sure to reserve your spot in advance for these unforgettable nights of exploration and entertainment. Learn more and reserve your spot here.
