Halloween Magic includes the traditional Not-So-Haunted House on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, (Oct. 14-16, 21-23 & 28-30), where storybook characters come alive and make surprise visits throughout the museum. Children ages 2 to 12 can trick or treat throughout the museum using jokes and riddles to find treat locations, and families will enjoy Halloween craft projects in the Art Studio as well as all their favorite play experiences, many with a Halloween twist.
And don't miss the Mostly Ghostly Haunted Mansion! Have you heard the rumors that The Magic House is haunted at night? Now you have the chance to explore this mysterious possibility! Take a private spooky tour of the 1901 Victorian House where it all started and play along the way!
At the Mostly Ghostly Haunted Mansion, make creepy poses in the Shadow Wall, have your hair stand on end at the Electrostatic Generator, twirl down the three-story slide amidst hanging bats and find out where the secret staircase really leads. The rest of the Museum will be open too, plus enjoy delicious Dracula donuts and chilling beverages. The Mostly Ghostly Haunted Mansion will be held October 28, 29 and 30 from 5:45 to 8:45 p.m. Recommended for children ages 7 and above.
Outdoor experiences include Trick or Treat Town, where kids can put on their witches' hats (helmets), pick out their favorite broomstick (tricycle) and explore everything this Halloween-themed town has to offer.
