A “wild” night of Halloween fun for the whole family. Enjoy a not-too-spooky Halloween event for families with kids ages 12 and under. Get your costume ready and come dressed as your favorite character or wild animal. Trick-or-treat throughout the Museum as you walk through themed galleries filled with characters and decorations! Make creepy crafts and play Halloween games. Enjoy live animal shows featuring fierce and not-so-fierce Halloween critters.  Plus, take a nighttime hike along the outdoor boardwalk and see the Dinosaur Discovery Trail by night!  See the spook-tacular laser show “Fright Light”  in the Abbitt Planetarium for an added fee
Cost: $10 per member, $15 per non-member. Planetarium tickets will be sold at the lobby front desk during the event. Children ages 2 and under are free, but must sit in parent's lap. If you want your child (ages 2 and under) to have a seat, you must purchase a ticket. Children 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult.  Timed tickets on sale now at:
