5th Annual Haunted House
— a PG-13 collection of spooky and macabre vignettes that incite goose bumps in every trick-or-treater. Genevieve Keeney, president of the museum, tells us that despite its spooky feel, the maze is really quite family-friendly. “It’s whimsical and has an element of fear, but it’s also geared for kids,” she says. For a special treat, haunted house tickets are half price when purchased with regular museum admission, making this the perfect outing for the whole family. Permanent exhibits worth the undertaking include the celebrity-inspired “Thanks for the Memories” and the mummified “History of Embalming.” 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Through November 2. National Museum of Funeral History, 415 Barren Springs. For information, call 281-876-3063 or visit nmfh.org
