The Duluth Children's Museum was open to everyone except children on Thursday.

The museum held one of its "Science on the Rocks" events, to let adults know that the museum is not just for kids. The 21-plus event includes wine, beer and food. Adults are invited to interact with the science exhibits.

This year's theme was "The Science of Superheroes."

"That came around because, who doesn't like superheroes, right?" Museum Program Coordinator Aaron Slonecker. "Kids like them, adults like them, and so it really just bridges the gap between all ages."
