Some Fun is Brewing!
Bring your little monsters and ghouls for our Halloween event! The Halloween Trains will be offered Saturday, Oct. 23, and again on Halloween weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 30-31. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, and 12 – 5 p.m. on Sunday. The train ride will be decorated for Halloween, with music to match.
Kids and adults are encouraged to get into the holiday spirit by wearing their Halloween costumes! We will have a costume contest at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on both Saturdays, and 2 pm. on Sunday!
Activities galore! Hayrides (included in your admission) will be offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., kids will receive a take-home coloring sheet, a temporary tattoo, and a treat bag!
As you tour the museum, kids will enjoy a Halloween Scavenger Hunt that will have them searching for pumpkins, skeletons, and tombstones!
The Scarecrow Stroll is also currently being offered at the museum, featuring scarecrows across the museum’s 60-acre grounds, decorated by local businesses, civic groups, community organizations, and individuals. It is yet another fun addition to your visit included in your admission. During your stroll, pick and vote for your favorite!
For a special treat on October 23 and 30, add a ride on our caboose train, powered by the JEDDO COAL Steam Locomotive #85 to your museum admission ticket, or your museum admission/passenger train ride ticket.
Due to capacity limitations, visitors are strongly encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.
