Event Series Event Series: HalloWEEKEND


October 31, 2023   |   10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Join us for a weekend of not-too-scary Halloween activities that kids of all ages will enjoy! Bats, spiders, pumpkins, and more will take over our exhibits during the spooky season and families can check out special Halloween activities on October 28th, 29th, and 31st (closed Monday).

Pirate Pete’s Trick-or-Treasure Takeover: Our mascot, Pete, is wearing his pirate costume for Halloween this year and taking over the museum with spooky, swashbuckling fun! Build a sea-worthy ship in the blue room, make a pizza with treacherous toppings, and deposit gold doubloons at the bank. We’ll also have pirate training activities, a scallywag scavenger hunt, sea shanty sing-alongs, and so much more! 

Costumes are encouraged (but not required)! Disguise yourself from the pirates or join Pete’s band of buccaneers. Our team will join the fun as well, so keep an eye out for dinosaurs, superheroes, and other silly characters.

All activities are included with museum admission. FREE for members!

Other Halloween events at The ICM:

Sensory Friendly Halloween – Our monthly Sensory-Friendly Night is Halloween-themed this month! Families are invited to join us for sensory-friendly Halloween activities in a calmer environment and opportunities to collect treats in our museum exhibits.

Jack SPLAT – Once Halloween is over, don’t throw your pumpkins away. Let us throw them from up high instead! Grab your jack-o-lanterns and join us for JACK SPLAT at Chauncey Swan Park.
