4 1 GROUP TRAVEL LE ADER T H E C A R N E G I E M U S E U M S O F P I T T S B U R G H P I T T S B U R G H Five times a year, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History — one of four Carnegie museums in Pittsburgh — stays open late for a 21-and-over party, where guests mingle among the museum's sauropods and T. rexes. Each After Dark event includes live music, drinks and hor d'oeuvres for purchase, and curated programming intended to allow visitors to see and experience the museum in a new way. Every event is designed around a specific pop-culture-inspired theme. The theme for the March event is "Beauty and the Beast After Dark," with a focus on metamorphosis, real beasts and "transformative natural phenomenon" in the museum's castle- like setting. The Carnegie Museum of Art's Third Thursday program often features both live music and DJs. In December, guests donned headphones to dance around the museum during a silent disco, and January's event featured live performances of songs inspired by the museum's #cmoarealday social media campaign, which invited people to contribute images that represent their daily lives.
