 Park after Dark revised

Creepy Crafts, Spooky Science, &
Family Fun 

Join us for "Park after Dark" and enjoy safe, family Halloween fun!

The Museum is partnering with the Mississippi Children's Museum (MCM) and LeFleur's Bluff State Park for the second annual Park after Dark event.

The entire family is encouraged to wear costumes. Families will be able to experience spooky science, create creepy, crawly arts and crafts, and trick-or-treat throughout both museums. There will also be costume contests at each museum this year. MMNS will be on the lookout for awesome animal costumes while MCM will be seeking the most imaginative costume!


Check-in will be available at both Museums.  Admission is $8 per person regardless of museum membership.

From the Event Coordinators:

"We are so excited about the second annual Park after Dark," said Megan Fedrick, MMNS Education Coordinator. "Last year's event was a blast! Our educators loved putting a spooky spin on science education.  We are really looking forward to working with Lefleur's Bluff State Park and MCM again this year."

MCM Programs Director, Chavanne McDonald said, "Last year's event was a big success!  It provided families a safe place to come and learn spooky science, create fun holiday crafts, and even get some trick-or-treating in before the holiday. We love partnering with our neighbors (MMNS) and the Park for this fun family event."
