Every April, Yuri’s Night parties and events are held around the world to mark Yuri Gagarin becoming the first human to venture into space (April 12, 1961) and the inaugural launch of the space shuttle 20 years later.

This year the Museum joins the global celebration of humanity’s past, present, and future in space with its first Yuri’s Night bash on April 14!

Yuri’s Night at the Museum is a 21+ dance party with music, smarts, tech and arts. The 7-11PM event will offer a cash bar, food trucks, aerospace guest stars and dance music provided by Noise Complaint. Activities will include Mixed-Reality experiences, roaming robots and a contest for the evening’s best space-themed attire from fact or fantasy. All of this in Seattle’s most celestial place—the Museum’s towering space gallery, surrounding the Space Shuttle Trainer, Soyuz spacecraft and today’s New Space ventures.

Tickets: SOLD OUT
Food & drink are available for purchase on site.

About Noise Complaint

Gone is the party where the music and the people at the party mattered more than making money. As Electronic Dance Music has exploded in popularity over the last several years, so have crowds and ticket prices along with it. In the beginning, events were held in underground, often intimate venues. It was about the music, and it was about each other.

Noise Complaint is taking it back to its roots, bringing the people quality, dance floor focused house and techno all while pushing that party-don't-stop vibe that everyone loves. We're bringing in huge talent - DJs and producers that are well known and respected but that we also personally vibe with. We're doing this at a small price, and in an intimate space. It's about the music for us, it's about the party and the vibe and the memories and friends you will make. Every Noise Complaint should be the best party you've been to since well, the last Noise Complaint.

We're more than just a party, we're a movement.
