Festivities will run over three days, with a range of spooky activities to thrill adults and kids alike. The Museum has worked hard to create event that takes into account COVID safety procedures but leaves plenty of room for fun. Admission includes a viewing of the BOOM! show, and a spooky story for our guests. Please note that the Underground train will not be a part of Halloween celebrations this year - guests who are especially keen to tour the Underground can do so with the purchase of an additional ticket. 

  • Strange Science Shows – Interactive Halloween-themed science show featuring jack-o-lanterns, strange witches brews, spooky potions and tricks full of mysterious experiments, learning and fun.
  • Cabinet of Curiosities – Located at the Museum’s Machine Shop, marvel at underwater marine life of Howe Sound with specimens (not live) from Vancouver Aquarium such as a juvenile wolf eel, and a variety of animal specimens from the Beaty Biodiversity Museum including a replica of a blue whale flipper skeleton.
  • Bats! Saturday the 24th only.  Come and learn about Halloween's favourite mascot! Explore the fascinating world of bats with the Greater Vancouver Coordinator for the BC Community Bat Program. Learn about local species, why they need your help and simple things you can do to help the local bat population.
  • Halloween Costume Photo Booth - Cindy Cardiff Games will be on site with a Halloween photo booth to capture moments with ghouls and goblins and whatever ghastly costumes visitors come with.
