Halloween Family Day

Join the Museum’s Education Department for a Space Halloween Extravaganza! In honor of our current special exhibition, Space: A Journey to our Future, we will be making and dropping gumdrop parachutes. Be sure to stick around until 2:30 pm to see if our astronaut pumpkin can survive a drop from the Museum roof with his space capsule parachute!

Kids 12 and under are FREE with a paid adult admission (limit four kids). Does not include special exhibitions.

Building sessions will be at 11:30 am and 12:30 pm and last 45 minutes.

The Museum’s Halloween Family Day is part of a Balboa Park-wide event happening that day. For more information, please click here
