Spooky Science at the Montshire

October 28, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This special evening event at the Museum will feature “tricked out” exhibits and live Halloween-themed demonstrations designed especially for families with children through age 12.

The event will also include opportunities to make Potions, build Skeletons, handle Creepy Crawlies, and investigate the Dark. For young guests, there will be a not-so-spooky edition of the Montshire’s new TogetherTime Tales program. The event will conclude with a Grand Finale and trick-or-treating.

Guests are invited to come in costume and participate in costume contest. Prizes will be awarded in several categories, including: Best Family Costume, Best Baby Costume, Most Earth Friendly Costume, Best Science-Themed Costume, and Most Creative Costume.*

The Museum recommends that you purchase tickets in advance as this event will sell out. Ticket price includes museum admission and access to all Spooky Science exhibits, activities, demonstrations, and light refreshments. Tickets to Spooky Science are $10 per person for Montshire Members and $14 for non-members. Admission is free for children under the age of two. Free event parking is available at the Museum.

*Please ensure that costumes are not too scary (no gore, blood, or weapons) and that costume-wearers can move safely around the museum.

This event is made possible with a generous contribution from LCS Controls, Inc.
