#WhatsHappening: ‘Halloween Night at the Museum’ returns to Lander October 15-16

(Lander, WY) – Pioneer Museum in Lander presents its annual “Halloween Night at the Museum” on October 15th & 16th on the grounds of the Museum of the American West.

Big and little monsters (and vampires, and ghosts and mummies) are invited to fun, slightly spooky evenings in Lander from 6 to 9 pm. Admission is $4 per person – all funds raised go to support events at the museum.

Past year’s events have been huge hits, with hundreds of kids and adults going through the museum, shared Randy Wise, museum site manager.


New eerie Wyoming-themed stories and candy treats will be on the porches of the historic buildings on the Museum of the American West grounds, and the very popular haunted hayride will run through the Pioneer Village. The rides are being done by Lander State Farm owner Justus Jacobs and his team of draft horses.

There will be Halloween crafts for kids in the Pioneer Association’s picnic shelter. A bonfire to roast marshmallows, popcorn, and hot chocolate will be in front of the Pioneer Cabin. The haunted maze through the Livery Stable will be back this year.

Kids (and adults) are encouraged to wear their costumes.

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.
