This year our not-so-scary, silly, fun, favorite Halloween event is during the day!
Dress up in your favorite costumes as you enjoy games, face-painting and a treasure hunt. We can even help you prepare for trick-o-treating as you create masks, decorate pumpkins and design your own tote bag for collecting all of your treats!
Free with museum admission. $3 material fee for select activities.
