Science gets spooky at the Saint Louis Science Center's annual Halloween party! Bring your little ghouls, goblins, astronauts and dinosaurs to this Halloween event for hands-on, spell-binding science. You can even get spooked in the Haunted Lab as you make your own slimy creation.
The whole family is encouraged to come in costume. (Visitors over the age of 12 are asked not to wear masks.)
You'll see pumpkins fall from the highest floor of the Science Center in an amazing science demonstration, "Spooky Science Goes Splat," observe the First Quarter Moon at free telescope viewings, see Halloween-themed movies in the OMNIMAX Theater, make your own slimy creations, see an owl release, sit in on a spooky storytime, visit the Haunted Lab, explore Halloween optical illusions in the prep lab, learn science jokes for Halloween, and lots more.
October 25-28, 2018 from 5 to 8 p.m at the Saint Louis Science Center. General admission and parking are free; some experiences require tickets that will be available on-site.
