Boo! We’re summoning all goblins big and small to attend our annual MONSTER MASH celebrating the harvest season and Halloween! This year, little witches, ghouls, and princesses can enjoy the Museum’s fun-filled, Halloween themed programs leading up to the big party and beyond!
Boasting a successful track record as being Brooklyn’s best Halloween party for kids, MONSTER MASH 2013 features family-friendly trick-or-treat alternative activities including a costumed DJ dance party led by DJ Kakez, Michael Jackson “Thriller” tribute, spooky activities, costume parade, slithery animals, and much more. Children of all ages are encouraged to attend dressed in their best Halloween finery. This festival is not to be missed! Sponsored by MCU.
As in past years, special admission tickets are required for entry to the party. Due to the popularity of the party every year, we recommend purchasing tickets in advance at the Museum’s admissions desk.
