Event Details

At The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis Guild’s 59th Annual Haunted House, you’ll have the once-in-a-nightmare chance to explore the town where Halloween villains live during their “offseason.” The classic villains—mad scientists, witches, zombies, werewolves, and more—are back. And they’re just DYING to meet you.

BOOville is full of all the Halloween villains: ghosts, an underwater sea creature, the Grim Reaper and so much more,” says Guilda, BOOville’s very own resident witch. Add mad scientists, zombies and werewolves that howl. No need to fear, the good witches of the Museum Guild will be near to keep those silly monsters in check with lights on while they hand out treats during AES Indiana’s Lights-on Hours. Older ones who “dare to be scared” can visit the haunted house during AAA’s Frightening Hours with the lights off — setting the stage for creepy stuff.
