The Detroit Science Center says it plans to open for one night next month as part of Midtown's annual Noel Night festivities.

The center will open free of charge to the public on Dec. 3 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Noel Night activities take place in and around over 60 of Midtown Detroit's Cultural Center institutions. Activities include horse-drawn carriage rides, holiday shopping, family craft activities and performances by overĀ 120 area music, theatre and dance groups.

Free shuttle service is offered between participating venues. A nearby shuttle stop will be located between the Detroit Science Center and Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. Convenient parking is available in area lots.

The center closed Sept. 26 after its board decided an ongoing deficit had created a financial crisis that couldn't be fixed without halting operations. Officials have said a cash infusion is needed before the facility can reopen to the public.
