You’re cordially invited to the Franklin School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. For one night only, The Franklin Institute will transform into a wonderland of some of the world's most magical science – from potions to fantastic beasts. Don’t be a muggle and miss it!

Featured Programming
Wide World of Wizardry Potion-Off 2017 (Live Show)
Join us for Potion-Off 2017 as returning champ Severed Snipe takes on a newcomer from The Franklin Institute. Spells will be chosen at random as magic tries to tackle science. Whose "magic" will reign supreme?

OOLALA in the Fels Planetarium
Playing the Yule Ball are local cinematic space rockers OOLALA. They may not be the Weird Sisters, but even muggles will find magic in OOLALA's hook-laden funk-rock jams laced with psychedelic, glitter rock and heavy soul. Under the starry skies of the Fels Planetarium, OOLALA will seek answers to the cosmological mysteries that lie beyond our grasp through the power of rock and roll.
