Halloween is fast approaching and there are so many ways to celebrate! Of course, everyone loves to trick-or-treat. It’s the traditional way to celebrate, after all. But have you ever tried trick-or-treating at a museum? On October 22nd, you have a chance to do just that at A Night at the Museum, an annual event held by the Tampa Bay History Center.
Families can celebrate Halloween at this event in a different way than what they might be used to. The kids will love the opportunity to make their way through hands-on exhibits put on by the History Center. They can trick or treat from historical figures, like pirates and pioneers, or from Star Wars characters like the Storm Troopers. New for this year, children will also be able to enjoy the Kid’s Silent Disco, powered by the Gasparilla Music Festival.
And that’s not all! There will also be a costume contest in which the participants will be competing for prizes. In addition, kids can play games, make crafts, take pictures in the retro-photo booth and more! Every kid will find an activity they love as they go through the event.
This year, A Night at the Museum is open for two different sessions. Whether you go from 2-3:30pm or from 4:30-6pm, everyone is sure to have a good time. This event is open to all children, regardless of age, who are accompanied by an adult.
Tickets are $10 for children and $12 for adults. Tickets are now available for advance purchase on the Tampa Bay History Center website. However, if you don’t get a ticket in advance, don’t worry! There will also be a limited amount of tickets available at the door for purchase at a slightly higher price.
If you didn’t already have plans for celebrating Halloween, look no further because A Night at the Museum will be a night to remember.
