To kick the weekend off early, there's a party at the Franklin Institute on Thursday night. Everyone gets one complimentary drink and more can be purchased from cash bars throughout the museum.
Also, there will be samples of 1920s whiskey recipes and guests can taste medicinal-style bourbon that a doctor would have prescribed during the era.
After Wonderspaces opens this weekend, be prepared to see photos from the interactive art exhibit all over your Instagram feed.
Visitors will find installations by artists from around the world. There are virtual reality experiences, rows of lights that change color in correspondence to music and so much more. We won't spoil all the surprises. You'll have to see it for yourself.
