Pioneer Museum in Lander presents “Halloween Night at the Museum” October 25, 26
Kids and families are invited to a fun (slightly) “spooky night at the museum” at the Pioneer Museum in Lander. The annual event has been a huge hit with area residents over the past 6 years. It starts at 6 p.m. and runs until 9 p.m. both nights.
There will be crafts and activities in the main lobby of the museum. Inside the museum groups will take a spooky tour and hear ghost stories based on real unexplained events in Wyoming history. Stories will include “, “The Spider,” a tale based on Arapahoe legends, and “The Last Ride,” about a cowboy’s ghostly encounter.
After touring the museum and hearing the ghost stories, kids and their parents will be invited to select candy, roast marshmallows, eat popcorn and drink hot chocolate around a campfire outside.
The popular haunted hay ride will take people through the pioneer village and the “Mis-fortune” Teller will be using her crystal ball to tell fortunes in an old sheep wagon.
This year a new attraction will be an eerie maze in the Livery stable, where chills await around every corner.
Kids, and adults, are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to the event.
The cost for the event is $4.00 per person. All funds raised go to support events at the museum.
The Night at the Museum is part of the kid’s exploration series sponsored by the Lander and Riverton Bailey Tire and Auto Service and Pit Stop Travel Centers.
