Night at the Museum 2017


Let’s go back in time… Back to a time when IMAGINATION and DISCOVERY ruled your universe. When the tiniest of rocks and the largest of stars elicited a sense of pure fascination for the world around you, begging the question… What does it all mean?


Join Event Chairs Noreen and Darren Dupriest for the 2017 Night at the Museum, a Gala evening of discovery and immersion into the wonders of Science and Natural History. Your support will enable and inspire students and educators throughout the Kansas City area to re-discover science not only as a way to understand the world, but make a difference; in their lives and our community.


Your participation in the Night at the Museum Gala creates a unique opportunity for students and educators to experience science not only as a body of knowledge, but a way of thinking through direct interaction, observation, and exploration.

KC Urban Advantage


KC URBAN ADVANTAGE is a standards and research-based collaboration between urban schools and Kansas City cultural and learning institutions (museums, science centers, zoos) to collectively provide extraordinary resources in direct support of Science & Natural History-specific goals.


This innovative and world-class program, developed in New York City by the American Museum of Natural History, provides professional development for educators and administrators; equipment and supplies for schools; and field experiences and scholarships for students, their families, educators, and administrators in the greater KC metro and urban core. Your sponsorship of Night at the Museum provides funds to support scholarships for students across the metro region to participate in KC Urban Advantage. Funding is also utilized to support professional development for educators as well as equipment and supplies for classes.
