How about spending Halloween at the Museum this year?
Paying activity, included with admission to the Museum
Children will enjoy a whimsical look (with some thrills and chills, naturally) at the cultural origins of Halloween and associated beliefs, as they tour the Museum. According to Jack O'Lantern, a young Irishman condemned to wander through purgatory with only a lantern carved from a turnip, the remains are haunted by twins Rucht and Friucht, a very superstitious witch and a Druid magician who knows the secret of light ... and courage. Ready? Set? Boo!
