After Hours: Wild Romance

February 14 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Come and see how it’s done in nature. Humans aren’t the only ones who deserve a date night.

A perfect night out for groups of friends, couples, or singles looking (or not looking!) for love! There’s something for everyone at Wild Romance.

Whether it’s a tango lesson to woo your Valentine, a pop-up talk on all things “horn”-y (beetles, and bison, and rams, oh my!) or the Museum’s first ever “Animal Mating-Ritual Dance-Off,” this event is sure to get your blood pumping and your toes tapping. Express yourself at our love and friendship-themed craft table, and learn from Museum experts all about the animal kingdom’s most effective matchmaking services. Enjoy a romantic signature drink, or if you believe romance is dead, help us destroy a red rose with liquid nitrogen.

Drop-in tango lessons and performances by Tango Salon Winnipeg

The evening includes complimentary snacks and a cash bar.
