Due to changes in many community trick-or-treat plans because of expected inclement weather, The Children’s Museum Guild decided to keep the Haunted House open until 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 31 offering children and families a safe and dry place to celebrate Halloween.
The house will be decked out for IPL’s Lights-On Hours recommended for children who scare easily. Friendly-faced greeters will be passing out treats allowing children and families an alternate way to trick-or-treat. This year’s theme,Time Warp , takes families on an awfully amazing journey back in time to explore five “deadcades” of movies, music, television, and history through a terrifying Time Warp. New this year–see it in 3-D!
The Haunted House was previously scheduled to be open 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Halloween. It will now be open 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and 3:30-8:30 p.m., allowing for a shift change between 3 and 3:30 p.m.The rest of the museum will close as scheduled at 5 p.m.
Tickets are $7 per person ($6.50 per member) and can be purchased online or at the door.
