Kevin Delaney, director of visitor experience at the Museum of Discovery in Little Rock, will be a featured performer on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, May 5, at 10:30 p.m. 

Delaney will be performing three science demonstrations with Fallon as his laboratory assistant.

You may also recognize Delany as the voice of the Speaking Science spots that air on KUAR 89.1.

The museum says Delaney was chosen after Tonight Show producers reached out to educators at more than 50 museums across the country.

Based on a video the museum submitted, Kevin was selected to appear on a Feb. 10 "test show" before Fallon debuted as the new host on Feb. 17.

Producers shared their decision for Kevin to be the show's science expert soon thereafter, but the date for his first appearance was confirmed only days ago.

Museum donors, members and volunteers are invited to attend a museum-hosted live watch party on Monday, May 5, from 9:30-11:30 p.m. at the Ron Robinson Theater in the Arcade Building at the southwest corner of President Clinton and River Market Avenues. Refreshments will be served.

The museum asks to RSVP to Ginsie Simmons at gsimmons@museumofdiscovery.org or 501-537-3081. The museum today also debuts new Kevin-themed content on its webpage - www.museumofdiscovery.org.
