For just one night each year, The Museum of Flight becomes The Museum of Fright! This year the fun begins on Friday, Oct. 30 at 4 p.m. with safe and fun activities until 9 p.m. The excitement continues all night for those registered to participate in The Museum of Fright Sleepover--see details below. Last year's inaugural Museum of Fright was one of the most popular family events of the year, with prizes for the kids, frightful flights, haunted hangars and "dead-ucational" activities including a scavenger hunt. Meet the ghosts of aviation's past or be a part of future flights of fancy. Costumes are encouraged-especially aerospace garb. $5 for adults, $3 for youth 5 - 17, free for children 4 and under.
