Fright at the Museum
The afternoon will offer "Wild Files" a program by Denver Museum of Nature and Science enticing families to solve wildlife mysteries. The Denver Zoo will also be on hand to engage guests in learning about some of the living critters that make our hair stand on end you might even get to hold a tarantula! That's not all, Walking Mountains Science Center will offer endless other fun experiences to leave kids satisfied and overflowing with excitement, such as a haunted hike, animal obstacle course, storytelling, and a mad science concoction. Enjoy tasty treats as the sun goes down and the sounds of the night come alive!
Fright at the Museum celebrates community and the season of spookiness while also raising vital support for educational programs that benefit the children, adults and families of our community. Proceeds from the event will be used to enhance and expand Walking Mountains' programming so that even more people can participate and benefit from our unique, hands-on science education in the future.
Tickets can also be purchased in person at Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon to avoid internet fees. $10/person or $15/person with the inclusion of the Denver Museum presentation. Kids 3 and under are FREE.
