Eureka children’s museum in Halifax is soaking up the Hallowe’en spirit this October half-term as it is transformed into a spooky Ghost Town from tomorrow (Saturday, October 20) through to Sunday, November 4.
The venue is inviting families to explore the mysteries of the Ghost Town and meet some of the ghosts and ghouls who dwell there - such as the Lord and Lady of the Manor, who’ll be holding regular spooky dancing sessions in the Town Square.
The indoor theatre will become an overgrown Manor House garden, complete with a ghoulish resident who has set a number of tasks for visitors who dare to enter. The fiendish fun will continue in the museum grounds as a grisly grave robber will ask for visitors’ help to dispel resident spooks and spirits.
Visitors can even get creative with Hallowe’en-themed crafts for all ages and take part in a “body parts gallery” trail.
With the museum’s biggest gallery, Me & My Body, closing for a £2.9million redevelopment, October half-term will also be everyone’s last opportunity to visit the gallery before it closes on November 5, with the brand new gallery being unveiled next year.
All events are free with standard admission or a Eureka annual pass.
