Answers to Your First Friday Questions

How does First Friday Trivia work?
To play, register as an individual or with a team in May Hall. We can accommodate up to 25 teams. There will be five rounds of trivia, with five questions each round. Prizes for the winners of each round!

How do I get free tickets? (for shows, presentations, activities, etc.)
Get your tickets at any box office, starting at 6pm. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each person is allowed up to four tickets for your group. Once you have a ticket, you must be in the theater by showtime to claim your seat. If you decide not to use your ticket, please return it to the Membership Desk in the Main Building Lobby. Tickets turned in for sold out shows will be redistributed at the Membership Desk until 30 minutes prior to showtime. After this, visitors without tickets may wait in a standby line outside of the show’s venue. We will let in those standing by to fill all seats not claimed by showtime.

What are the costume guidelines?
We encourage guests to wear costumes! Thanks to our partner Johnnie Brock's Dungeon for providing costumes for Science Center staff.
We ask that your costume not interfere with your safety or the safety of others. You may use face paint and partial face-masks. We ask that you carry any full-face masks or helmets while entering and when you are walking through the Science Center. You may wear your headgear while being photographed.
Weapons as part of costumes are subject to the approval of Saint Louis Science Center Security. No firearms or illegal weapons are allowed and if the weapon has a blade, you must have a covering for it.
