It is one of the most anticipated museum events in Pennsylvania, starting at 8:00 pm and running until midnight. This year the event will be held on September 16. This will be the closing event for the exhibition Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen, and you can attend with admission prices ranging from $25.00 to $200.00 for a VIP experience.

Carnegie Museum of Natural History

If you feel like a night of dancing and nostalgia, then the Carnegie Museum of Natural History is the place to be on September 22. It is the Harvest Moon Event, which begins at 6:00 pm and runs until 10:00 pm. This adult only (45+) event is a night of cocktails, music, and dancing inspired by the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Enjoy dancing at the music hall foyer and live doo-wop band. The Harvest Moon Event is popular with Pennsylvania residents and is a great event for couples and singles. Tickets are $10.00 per person.
