This location is open late on New Year's Eve so you can get a great view of the fireworks. The viewing party is from 5pm to 7pm and takes place on the second balcony of the museum, and the first fireworks show starts at 6pm. The party is complete with a sparkling apple cider toast so the whole family can participate.
