2nd Annual National Museum of Funeral History Halloween Haunted House

This month is, understandably, the busiest one for The National Museum of Funeral History, and it’s hosting a number of events throughout October. The first of these is a family-friendly haunted house designed to give goosebumps to young and old alike while providing a look at the very serious issue of death. Children below the age of 12 are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. Admission to the haunted house is half off when you purchase admission to the museum.

At the Dracula Cemetery Exhibition, visitors can learn about the history of the Dracula myth, including the real-life inspiration for the character and the terminology involved in vampire lore. They will also have the chance to get their picture taken in a coffin.

The 6th annual Halloween Car Show will take place for one day only: October 26. In addition to the opportunity to see decorated cars, there will be a full-on fall festival atmosphere with face painting and arts and crafts for the kids, great food including barbecue and cupcakes from local vendors, a live DJ and a silent auction.
Oct. 1-Nov. 3, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2013
