On the last Friday of every month beginning in July, the Walt Disney Family Museum is inviting visitors to experience its galleries in a new light through a monthly after-hours party announced Thursday.

The “Animate Your Night” series will feature music, performance, film screenings and hands-on art activities, according to museum officials.

Each month the after-hours event will have a unique theme, such as “Ready, Steady, GO!” in July, which will celebrate the 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremonies with a signature cocktail called The Olympian, complimentary pub food, and Disney Olympic classics.

The museum, which is located at 104 Montgomery St. in The Presidio, is also planning to offer a short gallery talk about its 1960 Olympic Torch from the Squaw Valley Olympic Games.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for museum members.
