Visit the Children’s Museum for our Annual Kid-friendly Halloween Event!

FUNtazmagoria at the Children’s Museum is the #1 Halloween event for kids! Stop by the Children’s Museum after hours for kid-friendly, spooky (but not scary) fun. We invite children, families and caregivers to join us for some Halloween themed attractions and hands-on activities.

Dig for bones in the Ghastly Corn Graveyard. Watch pumpkins explode in the Pumpkin Plop. And don’t miss our Mad Scientist Lab in Ella’s Art Studio with eerie electric exploration. Spider webs, ghostly shapes, and slime will all glow with spectral light next door at the Ghostly Glow-in-the-Dark Lab. Play with bubbling potions and prepare to meet real live creepy crawlies in Mary’s Garden.

Stay tuned for more information regarding this spook-tacular Halloween event for kids.


Thank you for visiting.

See you in 2024!

The Children’s Museum will be closed the day before and after the event

The museum will be closed to the public the Thursday before the event in order to set up all of the amazing attractions and decorations. We will also be closed Monday and Tuesday for the event break down and to give the Museum facility a much-deserved deep cleaning. We look forward to seeing visitors again during general admission the following Wednesday.
