Great Annual Event Coming Up At The Virginia Living Museum!

Night of the Living Museum

Saturday, October 18, 5-8pm

Are you ready for a “wild” night of spooky animals, trail walks, pumpkin carving and Mad Scientists?

Night of the Living Museum returns to the Virginia Living Museum for its 15th year on Saturday, Oct. 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. This is a non-scary Halloween event for families with kids ages 12 and under.

Come dressed as your favorite character or wild animal.

Enjoy live animal shows featuring fierce and not-so-fierce Halloween critters.

Discover pumpkin carving secrets in the Pumpkin Patch. Learn the ways of spiders large and small from the Spider Lady. Watch as our Mad Scientists conduct awesome experiments.

Visit tooth fairyland and pirate cave and meet creepy crawlies. Take a nighttime hike along the outdoor boardwalk.

Make creepy crafts and play Halloween games. There will be trick-or-treating for kids throughout the event.

Observe stars in the Halloween night sky (weather permitting).

See a condensed version of the spook-tacular laser show “Fright Light” at 5:45, 6:30 and 7:15 p.m. This is a frightfully awesome mix of terror-ific tunes! Wild and weird laser images accompany songs from Black Sabbath, Garbage, The Who and many more! “Fright Light” tickets are $2 for VLM members, $4 for non-members in addition to Night of the Living Museum admission.

The Wild Side Café and the Wild Things Museum Store will be open all evening.


Cost: VLM members $9 per person, non-members $12 per person. Purchase tickets in advance and save $1. Full price day of the event.

Children ages 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
