Where can I purchase tickets?

Tickets are $7 each,  and ages 5 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased

or at the Museum reception during our fall hours. (Fri, Sat, Sun from 11-3 pm until Oct. 15th)

Due to the large volume of people at fright nights, tickets will not be sold at the door.

 What if I purchase tickets for the wrong day, or change the day I want to go?

Not a problem, your ticket will be valid either night. Ticketing the event nights separately helps us to anticipate attendance.

Do I have to choose between family or fright hours?

Nope! You are welcome to come any time between 5 and 9 pm. We put out lots of notice to differentiate between the hours of 5-7 and 7-9 so you can prepare for what to expect.

What is the recommended age group?

Fright is fun for the whole family! We recommend recommend that families with young children or those who do not want to be scared come for the family-friendly hours.

Can we dress up?

Yes! We encourage all ages to dress up. Our theme is Pirates of the Prairies- feel free to join in!

Will there be food available for purchase?

Yes, there will be food and drinks for purchase- vendors will be listed shortly. 

There will be free candy and hot chocolate giveaways.

*Some vendors have square machines. However, we recommend bringing some cash.

What should we expect? 

This year, there will be trick or treating from building to building, games and activities, the corn maze, food and snacks. Remember to dress for the weather.

How can I get involved?
