Get ready for a museum monster mash! This year's annual Halloween blowout is all about brutes and beasts in legend and in nature. Come in costume, sip on spooky cocktails, dance to DJ Bill Jakub of Pittsburgh Vibes Unlimited, and check out monstrous specimens.
There will be bats in the Grand Staircase, ghosts in Paleolab, live jumping spiders, a dinosaur light show, and more spooky fun. Go on a scary scavenger hunt or paint a pumpkin. Venture into the Carnegie Music Hall Foyer for the Monster Mash to experience horrifying sounds of terror!
Do not miss hands-on activities, adult trick-or-treating, and more for a ghoulishly good time you can only find in the historic halls of the museum. Costumes are encouraged, but not required. Please note that no weapons (fake or otherwise), masks, or backpacks are allowed. (Face paint is permitted.)
Due to popular demand, the museum will hold two events this year on October 21 and 27.
Beer, wine, and light bites are available for purchase. Registration for each event includes museum admission. A selection of beverages and light bites are available for purchase (cash only). Parking is available for a flat rate of $6 in the museum's lot.
All After Dark guests must be at least 21 years old. Proper identification is required, and all guests must show ID at the door.
$15 in advance; $20 at the door; $13.50 for members
Five times a year, Carnegie Museum of Natural History keeps its doors open late for a 21+ party with bars, live music, and curated programming designed to give guests a whole new museum experience. Each event features a pop-culture inspired theme, unique activities, and shows. Forget your weekend routine, or shake up date night. Come see who you’ll meet and what you’ll discover at the museum…After Dark.
