The Fort Worth Science and History Museum is great fun for children, but UNT Health Science Center is partnering with the museum on an entertaining social event for adults.
Visitors 21 and older can enjoy wine or beer from a cash bar and interactive science learning from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, April 1 at the museum’s Science on Tap event.
