SEATTLE, Oct. 7, 2016--On Sunday, October 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the Museum offers Halloween family fun as The Museum of Fright. Transformed in holiday style, the Museum's spacious galleries provide acres of safe Halloween trick or treating where every child's imagination takes flight. There will be spooky aviation-themed ghost stories in the Personal Courage Wing; children can craft and drop ghost parachutes into a pumpkin patch far below a high-flying glider. They can fly witches on broomsticks through a giant pumpkin, test their metal on the gross-o-meter in the mad science lab, touch alien blood and guts, and hop through an obstacle course under the huge Blackbird spyplane.
Admission is free for those aged 17 and under and wearing a costume (with adult supervision); $5 for those aged 17 and under without a costume; $10 for adults.
