Museum After Dark is a chance for YOU to visit the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center after normal business hours. After all, when only open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., how do working people actually make time to visit cool places like museums?

The Museum After Dark series is a set of monthly programs geared towards working professionals in which the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center will be open late, “after dark.” Visitors will have a chance to see and experience the regular permanent exhibits, special temporary exhibits, the historic buildings in the Humphrey Heritage Village, and to participate in whatever special programming that might occur!

In short, every month, there is something new to see and do at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center!

What to expect…
