Have you ever wondered what goes on in the museum after dark? With recent movies like the hit Night at the Museum and its sequel, it’s definitely something we get asked about at the Burpee.
Nighttime at the museum isn’t normally anything out of the ordinary. …except, that is, around this time of year. Things definitely become a little different, a little strange…maybe…even scary.
Do you dare to explore the Haunted Museum?
On October 23, for one night only, you will have the chance to!
The Burpee Museum staff has been working on ideas for our second annual haunted house since the summer. We have lots of scary surprises lurking this year, in what we’re calling the Museum of Terror.
This event is geared for children who are over 10 years old, and we’re sure it’s going to be a scary night!
For those who don’t want to be so scared, we’re also offering an event with the Discovery Center called Night Sounds and Spooky Science. It runs on October 24 and features non-scary activities at both museums. Kids can dress up in their costumes and trick-or-treat between both places.
Here’s the facts you need for both events:
