Monster Mash

Saturday, October 31 — All Day Long!

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.

Storybook Pumpkin Contest
Noon – 1:00 pm

Bring a pumpkin decorated like a storybook character to the museum for a chance to get a Gift Card! You can enter your pumpkin from our pumpkin decorating activity ($3 material fee required) here at the museum from 10:30 – 11:30 am.
