On Halloween Day, things are getting spooky at The Health Museum from 2-7 p.m. with a free Night at the Museum where “Historical Figures” will magically come to life to teach guests about their scientific discoveries through hands-on activities and demonstrations. There will also be a ghastly scavenger hunt where guests will attempt to solve an Outbreak mystery!
Looking for a wicked treat? Celebrate sustainable food supplies by joining the cricket eating contest…if you dare! Sample a variety of flavors at the cricket buffet including sriracha, sour cream and onion, sea salt and vinegar, or Texas BBQ to tickle your taste buds. Consume enough crickets to meet your daily recommended amount of protein and get your name listed in The Health Museum’s Hall of Fame.
Lastly, join the “Mad Scientist” to learn about the oddities of the human body, meet Ida the Syndaver, see real animal organs (cow eye, sheep’s heart and brain) and participate in hands-on science experiments with dry ice and slime. Don’t forget to take your picture with one of the 50 skeletons placed throughout the museum!
