Night at the Boo!seum 2019

  • Museum at Prairiefire (map)

Night at the BOO!seum is back for another trick or treat extravaganza providing a fun and safe Halloween experience at the Museum at Prairiefire! This year we're celebrating monsters, astronauts, and mission control – oh my!

Visit the MAP between 4:30 and 6:30 PM for an exploration of the Great Hall, Discovery Room, Permian Monsters, Liberty Bell 7, and Apollo Redux exhibitions, and more! This event is for children 12 and under and their families.

Wear your favorite monster or NASA-themed costume for a chance to get an EXTRA spin at the prize wheel (every child in a costume gets one) and win exclusive Museum at Prairiefire prizes! Make sure you stop by all 13 stations to get all the tricks, treats, and mad science experiments at this year's Night at the BOO!seum!


Night at the BOO!seum is FREE for Museum Members and $5 for general admittance.

Pre-registration strongly encouraged. Parents and guardians only need to register their children who will be trick or treating. You can get your tickets at the door but you might get a trick instead of a treat! Reserve your tickets here:
