Take a Halloween themed tour of downtown museums and attractions during the 17th Annual Big Boo!-seum Bash on Thursday, Oct. 24 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. All activities are FREE.
Each museum will have its own festive take on Halloween, but expect to find storytelling, trick or treating, games and more.
The Historic Arkansas Museum will allow visitors to explore the museum decorated for Halloween. The mysterious Madame J will hand out fortunes, and those brave enough can enter the Spooky Theater and Twinkie Walk.
At the Witt Stephens Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center, discover a Karst”Cave” habitat, get batty with the only flying mammal and learn how to be a skull detective. The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center will have door-prize drawings, games, crafts and lots of candy.
Celebrate an early 20th century All Hallows’ Eve at the Old State House Museum with Arkansas movie monsters, like the Fouke Monster, the creature from the Black Lagoon and more. The movies will also be playing.
Others participating in the Big Boo!-seum Bash include the Central High Visitors Museum, MacArthur Military Museum, Curran Hall Visitors Center, Museum of Discovery and Central Arkansas Library System’s Main Library.
The Big BOO!-seum Bash is sponsored by the Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Greater Little Rock Museums Consortium.
Kids attending all sites, and getting their game card stamped at each location, can be entered into a drawing for a flat-screen TV.
