Lord of the Rings After Dark
Embark on an epic journey through Middle Earth at Lord of the Rings…After Dark. Tolkien’s world will come to life at this adult-only museum experience. Watch medieval sword fighting demonstrations, or shoot arrows like Legolas at an onsite archery range. Drink at The Prancing Pony or mingle in the mines of Moria. Listen to a talk by museum director Dr. Eric Dorfman, who lived and worked in New Zealand, where Lord of the Rings was filmed. Watch a local cartographer draw a Shire-style map of the museum, and go on a riddle-filled scavenger hunt. Join us for a costume contest, dancing, cocktails, and more! Sword demonstrations provided by Broken Plow Group. Archery range provided by The Archer’s Edge. Maps drawn by Stentor Danielson of "Mapsburgh.” Music provided by DJ Bill Jakub from Pittsburgh Vibes Unlimited. Registration for each event includes museum admission.
