Mind tricks, mirages, mystery games, forensics, secret societies and more! Guests will be questioning reality as the Perot Museum of Nature and Science throws its annual fundraising bash – Night at the Museum: Intrigue – on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 7 p.m.-midnight. From deceptive displays and sleights of hand to exciting encryptions and natural oddities, a slew of play-and-party activities and curiously cool cuisine will infiltrate all five levels of the Perot Museum keeping 1,000+ party goers on their toes all night.

Fascinating fun will include human mazes, lie detector tests, mirrored illusions, a game of mystery, baffling botany, handwriting analysis and other spy-game surprises. And with Wolfgang Puck planning the menu, guests can expect a plethora of palatable bites and beverages – all with a tricky twist – including 3D food printing, a mystery food lab and more. The menu includes delectables such as “squid ink” gnochetti and black truffles; homemade pimento cheese pretzels; Maine lobster horseradish panna cotta with spicy tomato and rainbow sorrel; plus a rotary evaporator station that extracts the taste – but not the smell – from distilled local apple cider.

The evening launches with an invitation-only VIP pre-party – for those at the Geode level and above – at 6 p.m., followed by the main party at 7 p.m. and after-party from 9 p.m. to midnight. Dress is cocktail attire, and valet parking is provided.

Event co-chairs are Sylvia E. Cespedes and Hernan J.F. Saenz, III and Meredith and Mark Plunkett, and honorary chairs are Sharon and Kip Tindell.

Proceeds from the annual Night at the Museum gala will support the Museum’s mission to inspire minds through nature and science, from on-site and outreach programs for pre-K through 12th graders, to financial assistance that allows students to visit the Museum, regardless of their school’s ability to pay. Underwriting contributions also fund research and collections efforts and help secure world-class traveling exhibitions.

Ticket packages begin at $2,500 (six guests). Individual tickets are not available.
