Museum Turns Back the Clock for Dance Party

Museum Turns Back the Clock for Dance Party

The Manitoba Museum will go retro tonight in honour of Yuri Gagarin, the first human to fly in space.

On April 12, 1961, Gagarin piloted Vostok 1 on a single orbit around Earth. Now the museum will celebrate with its third annual Yuri’s Night with a dance party in the Planetarium.

“Yuri’s Night is a great excuse to party in the name of science,” said Scott Young, the museum’s manager of science communications and visitor experiences. “It celebrates the human spirit, which can do anything — even leave the planet and fly in space.”

The party will run from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. and include local DJs and other performers.
