Mysteries of Halloween


Smithsonian Institution


MetLife Foundation

Saturday, October 29, 2011 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm

Museum admission required 


Join us for our annual celebration of some of the “spooky” animals and nature-based traditions associated with Halloween. Come learn about spiders and snakes, and don’t miss some of the strangest-looking skeletons from our closets and collection rooms that rarely see the light of day. We’ll have a puppet show, live birds of prey, games and crafts, including the chance for young visitors to create and frame their own mock X-ray image of a fish skeleton!


The Smithsonian Community Grant program, funded by MetLife Foundation, is a proud sponsor of this public program.
