Ever wonder what happens at the Charleston Museum at night when the doors are locked and the lights are dimmed?

Well the local museum is drawing inspiration and giving you the chance to find out on Friday, June 5, if the enormous Right whale or Egyptian statues come to life, at the Nighttime at the Museum event.

The Charleston Museum will be opening it's doors from 6:30 to 9 p.m., so bring your flashlights and imagination and see what adventures will unravel. Curators and staff will be stationed throughout the dimly lit galleries to share astonishing stories about collection pieces and even a tall tale or two. Come as you are or join in on fun by dressing as your favorite animal or in historical costume.
