The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery Dayton is hosting a new Halloween-themed event, Spirits: Halloween at the Boonshoft Museum, on Friday, October 23 from 8:00 – 11:00 pm. Providing adults (21+) an evening out, Spirits gives guests full access to the Museum’s popular exhibitions, in addition to aged-up activities that introduce the science behind some of pop-culture’s spooky favorites. You can count on experiencing a grown-up twist on things you loved as a kid, from an Alien Autopsy and explosive experiments to buzzy beer floats! Be sure to get a Coney Island Root Beer severed up with a dollop of vanilla ice cream at Spirits.
Sponsored by Goose Island Beer Co., Heidelberg Distributing, and Copp Integrated Systems, Spirits also offers guests themed-cocktails, test tube shots, “buzzy” root beer floats, and drinks, along with delicious bites from some of Dayton’s most popular eateries, including Beef ‘O’ Brady’s, Dayton Racquet Club, Mikesell’s, Milano’s, Bullwinkles, Lucky’s, and many more.
Admission to Spirits: Halloween at the Boonshoft Museum is $40 online and $50 at the door, which includes access to the Museum, one drink ticket, food, Monster Mash, and activities like a hands-on alien autopsy, a close-up peek of the Museum’s oddities from their 1.7 million-piece collection, mummy talks, roaming live-animals, explosive mad scientist shows, and the kitsch movie classic, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, playing in the Museum’s Planetarium.
The evening will culminate with the master of macabre and local celebrity, Baron Von Porkchop has seen some amazing Halloween costumes in his day, which is why he will be judging our costume contest! Guests are encouraged to wear a costume if they are so inclined.
All proceeds go towards the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery’s public education programming.
