Upcoming Events

April 12 - Lost Bethlehem Trivia Night

Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts
427 North New Street, Bethlehem, PA 18018

Grab your trivia crew and show off your hometown know-how in Bethlehem trivia hosted by Steven Bost. View items in the Kemerer Museum collection from places long gone, like the Broad Street theatres, Calypso Island, and the covered bridge.

(Legally!) explore the interior of Martin Tower through virtual reality provided by Alloy 5. In between, enjoy custom cocktails featuring A-Treat soda.

April 19 - The 100 Years Show

Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts
427 North New Street, Bethlehem, PA 18018

Not many people are familiar with the story of Carmen Herrera, the oldest working artist in the world. Herrera worked in obscurity for much of the 20th century before making a splash on the art scene at 88 years old. Now 103, The 100 Years Show follows her as she prepares for her 100th birthday show. Enjoy a night of discourse and conversation with Hispanic artists in the Lehigh Valley, then settle in for the 30-minute documentary with a drink and complementary snacks.

April 26 & May 3 - Retro Game Night

Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts
427 North New Street, Bethlehem, PA 18018

Compete against your friends on the games you remember playing as a child and maybe even beat your high score! Destroy your friendships with a game of Sorry! or take part in a friendly game of Super Smash Bros. Take a break from the screen to chow down on cosmic brownies and gushers at the childhood snack bar or enjoy a drink from a rotating selection of local libations. With arcade and console games provided by COIN Retro Arcade + Bar and Lick Arcade and prizes for high scorers, you better bring your A-game.
