If going through airport security and bumpy flights aren’t scary enough the Museum of Flight will take it one step further on Sunday, Oct. 28. That’s when it becomes the “Museum of Fright” for a Halloween celebration.

Costumed kids are admitted free at the event which runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be family activities and low admission prices for all visitors.

Events include: face painting, ghost stories, pumpkin bowling, ghost parachutes, spooky flight simulator rides, photo booth, “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” movie and more.

Costumed children 17 and under are free (with adult supervision.) Admission for children 17 and under without a costume is $5, and $10 for all adults. Admission prices are valid all day.
