Museums at Night: Spooky Science Parties

Friday, October 26, 2018

Don’t miss our Halloween parties with a science twist! Make gooey slime and take part in some fiendishly clever experiments in the Big Bang Science shows, explore the Winter Gardens by torchlight on a spooky trail and try your hand at creepy crafts.

The best Halloween costumes will receive a prize and there are hot drinks and pizza slices available to buy in Holmeside Coffee during the event. 

Suitable for children aged 5 years and upwards, all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Tickets cost £6 per child and must be pre-booked. They are available from the museum shop or at www.ticketsource.co.uk/event/269600.

The event is open from 5 – 8pm but you will need to book a 50 minute science show slot of 5pm, 6pm or 7pm. Numbers are limited to 30 children per show.
