The Springfield Museums invites you to dust off your air guitar and join them for their next Culture & Cocktails event of the season. The event takes place on Thursday, March 7 from 5-8 pm at the Springfield Science Museum, and is sponsored by Six-Point Creative Works.

Attendees can view the Museums’ featured exhibit GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World, including outlandish electric guitars and sound experiment stations. In keeping with the evening’s theme, visitors can be photographed performing “live at the Museums” on our special air guitar stage (props will be provided). There will also be a raffle for guitar-related prizes including limited-edition GUITAR t-shirts and a copy of the book “Guitars: 500 of the World’s Most Seductive Instruments.” The Charlie Galvin Band will be on hand to perform rock music classics, and visitors can shop for music-themed memorabilia and other fine gifts in the Museum Store.

The evening will also include a special planetarium show in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Seymour Planetarium, the oldest of its kind still in operation. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be provided by Elegant Affairs, and a cash bar will feature a special drink for the evening called “The Guitar Solo.”

Culture & Cocktails events take place on the first Thursday of most months, and are open to ages 21 and up. Admission is free for members of the Springfield Museums and $5 for nonmembers. Both museum members and nonmembers are encouraged to make advance reservations at www.springfieldmuseums.org or by phone at 413.263.6800, ext. 266.

Free, secure onsite parking is available. For additional information about Culture & Cocktails, call 413.263.6800, ext. 379.
