Fifteenth Annual Mourning & Halloween Tours
LOS ANGELES Its 1918, theres been a death in the family and you are invited to the funeral. Will you cry? What will you wear? Will you attempt to contact the dearly departed?
Get the answers as you join the funeral party and see how Edwardians grieved their dead at Heritage Square Museums popular Mourning Tours from noon 4pm on October 27 and 28, 2018. Throughout the weekend, funeral-goers will be immersed in mourning etiquette, participate in a reenactment ceremony inside a historic home and other activities including:
The year is 1918 and that means the Spanish Flu is wreaking havoc! Will you defy the gathering bans to attend the funeral? Or, if you are deemed sick, what will you discover as you are escorted into a flu-ridden home?
Learn about the turn-of-the-century movement of Spiritualism and the lure of séances complete with a reenactment and a discussion on the tricks of the trade.
Experience a re-creation of Phantasmagoria, a phenomenon that shocked and exhilarated its Victorian audiences.
Discover the dangers associated with beauty at an interactive exhibition.
Could a charismatic leader of a 1920s cult convince you to join them?
In addition to the above activities, a more family-friendly program takes place only on Sunday Oct. 28. Halloween Tours welcome children ages 2-12 to play period games, make 19th century inspired crafts, choose a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch (while supplies last) and trick or treat at each of the museums buildings.
