Wednesday Night Live: Passport to Europe

Wednesday Night Live: Passport to Europe



Looking for your next date night idea? This February, invite that special someone or gather your best pal group and travel abroad with the Bechtler through this special Wednesday Night Live “Passport to Europe” edition. Experience this FREE first-class journey learning about the diverse European influences that inspire the paintings, prints, and sculptures found within the Bechtler collection.

Grab your Passport to Europe when you check-in and experience the wonder of the world through the lens of artists featured in the Bechtler galleries. As you travel throughout the museum, get your passport stamped. Once you’ve collected your stamps from all destinations, you will be entered to win a Bechtler prize pack. Tired from all that travelling? Take a seat in our lobby and listen to our live guitarist from 6 PM to 8 PM. If all that globetrotting makes you thirsty, refresh yourself at the lobby bar or enjoy a cup of customizable hot chocolate at our hot chocolate bar! It’s the perfect sweet get-together to end (or begin) an evening of fun, travel, and music.
