Mad Scientist Experiments
Mad Scientists are taking over Walking Mountains! Enter their wacky laboratory and take over their zany experiments involving peculiar potions, concoct your own slime, dazzling density demonstrations, hair-raising electricity, madcap magnets, creepy crawly bugs, build a monster, and much more! You may enter the laboratory as a scientist, but try not to leave MAD!

Frankenstein Monster Craft
Take a walk on the spooky side as you make a Frankenstein magnet.
Enter a fun-filled dark, festive, and colorful room to experiment with different glow-in-the-dark materials and paints. Contribute your design to our glowing mural.

What is Halloween without a little face paint? Take some time to have our expert face painter get you in the Halloween mentality or add some style to the costume you are wearing.
Giant Bubble Experiments
Bubbles are fun to chase, but can you manipulate the size, shape, or color of the bubbles you make? Conduct your own experiment and play with others’ concoctions.

Fright at the Museum celebrates community and the season of spookiness while also raising vital support for educational programs that benefit the children, adults and families of our community. Proceeds from the event are used to enhance and expand Walking Mountains’ programming so that even more people can participate and benefit from our unique, hands-on science education in the future.
