Guests can wander among “dangerous” dinosaurs, “eerie” elephants, and the “uncanny” universe when more than 30 of the Museum’s halls open on Halloween for trick-or-treating, arts and crafts, fun with roaming cartoon characters, and live performances by David Grover and the Big Bear Band, Louie & Subanda, stiltwalkers, and the Big Nazo puppet troupe.
