HAUNTED MUSEUM AFTER DARK
October 20, 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
At the Museum
The world is full of stories of the weird and wonderful. Grab your best costume and join us at Haunted Museum After Dark to discover what is fact or fiction, and what mysteries are still waiting to be solved. What creatures inspired the monsters that haunt our dreams? What real animals, plants, and bugs are stranger than anything we can imagine?
• 8:30 p.m.: Keynote speaker Matt Lake, author of Weird Pennsylvania, gives an overview of some creatures that have enjoyed a century or more of widespread recognition without actually existing (at least, not as specimens in the wild).
• 6:30-7:15 p.m., 7:30-8:15 p.m., and 9-9:30 p.m.: Meet some of the museum’s slithery, scaly, and furry critters during Live Animal Meet and Greets.
• Find creepy, cute, and one-of-a-kind specimens that have emerged for one night only on the Cryptid Catch’em All Trick or Treat quest!
• Beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and light snacks will be available for purchase. For the first time, the bar will offer zero-proof gin, whiskey, and tequila, and non-alcoholic beer. Try the festive Poison Apple mocktail and Witches’ Brew cocktail!
Costumes are encouraged but cannot include masks that cover the entire face, weapons, or weapon-like objects. Safety face masks are permitted, but not required.
Pre-registration is strongly recommended. Tickets are $24 ($19 for members) when purchased online or over the phone before 5 p.m. on October 20. Tickets are $29 ($24 for members) at the door.
