For Members: The Polar Express PJ Party Survival Guide

Hello there, Science Museum of Virginia members! Welcome to the first just-for-members entry in the SMV blog. We’ll be using this space to give you news on our special member events and offers.


Our phones have been ringing off the hook with PJ Party registrations. Our original date, Friday, December 7th is full. Registrations for Saturday, December 8th are quickly approaching our IMAX®DOME’s capacity.  

Both parties start at 5:30 pm, and the film begins at 6:30. Here are some helpful hints to make your family’s PJ Party experience one of the best of the holiday season!
Confirm your reservation date. If you have any question about which evening you’re signed up for, just call us at 804.864.1449 or email membership@smv.org.
  • Arrive as early as you can and use the IMAX®DOME entrance.  This will give you time to check in, enjoy milk, cookies and crafts and get choice seats for the film at 6:30.
  • Even if the holiday spirit moves you, please do not bring additional unregistered guests. We cannot guarantee that theater seats will be available for them.  
  • If you registered and can’t come – please let us know so that other members can sign up and enjoy the party.
  • HAVE FUN! If you have some PJ party photos you’d like to share after the event, send them to us!
