Halloween at Frost Science

Calling all gals and ghouls! Visit the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science on Saturday, October 27 for the 2nd Annual Spooky Science Monster Mash, a unique STEAM spin on Halloween with bone-chilling science experiments and creepy, cool encounters throughout the day. Suit up in your favorite costume and explore the museum’s newest special exhibition, “Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence.” Explore the diversity of organisms that glow and learn how scientists study this amazing natural phenomenon. Welcome to the world of bioluminescence—the generation of light by living things.

Some of the day’s spooky science includes live science shows and demonstrations, underwater pumpkin carving in the aquarium, animal encounters and more.

Spooky Science programming is free with paid museum admission. All programming is ongoing throughout the day (11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.).
