It's the Not-So-Haunted House that is oh-so-fun! Kids of all ages are invited to dress in their most "boo-tiful" Halloween costumes and have a ghoulishly good time trick-or-treating at The Magic House and getting autographs from their favorite storybook characters.
This year's Halloween event will include a special visit from more than 15 storybook characters from favorite children's tales such as The Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and more.
Each child attending the Not-So-Haunted House event will receive a trick-or-treat bag and an autograph book for the not-so-spooky characters to sign as they trick-or-treat throughout four levels of the more than 100-year-old Not-So-Haunted House. This is a candy-free celebration.
While the Not-So-Haunted House won't be scary, The Magic House' Electro-Static Generator will make your hair stand on end!
The Not-So-Haunted House will be held during regular museum hours on Oct. 19-21 and Oct. 26-28: Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
