Special Family Event
DiMenna Creepy History Museum’s Haunted Halloween Party
Sunday, October 29th, 2017 | 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

All Ages
Advance tickets $10 per person
Day-of tickets $12 per person ($10 for Members)

Join us for our annual Hallowe’en extravaganza to experience the spookier side of the DiMenna Children’s History Museum! Kids and their families summon the spirits of the past through historical fortune-telling, ghost stories, creepy crafts, and of course…candy! Even the statues on our steps—Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass—get into the act, with families voting online to help us choose their costumes!

Please note: This event takes place at DiMenna Children’s History Museum on the lower level of the New-York Historical Society. The DiMenna Children’s History Museum will close to the public at 2 pm and will reopen at 3 pm for party ticket holders only. Haunted Hallowe’en Party tickets grant ticketholders access to the party itself only; families who wish to visit the rest of the Museum must purchase separate general admission tickets. 

Stay tuned for the announcement of our annual Lincoln and Douglass Statue Costume Contest!
