Celebrate Halloween—Exploratorium style! Join us in costume for our second annual extravaganza of scary science and frightful fun. We’ll explore the scientific and cultural phenomena behind Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, and a host of creeping, crawling, flapping, and otherwise fascinating creatures.
If you dare, step inside the Neverwas Haul (a haunted Victorian house on wheels), and tiptoe through our Cemetery of Dead Science. Meet a menacing menagerie of spiders, insects, bats, leeches, black cats, and gape at the macabre minutia of magnified creatures and objects. You may discover a room drained of color, see spine-tingling films, or witness mad scientists concoct ghastly experiments. Local artist Irma Ortiz will shape exquisite skulls from molten sugar and invite you to decorate a sugar skull of your own.
Drop in before trick-or-treating or before your Halloween festivities begin—we’ll have plenty of candy. Included with museum admission.
