Bartow History Museum becomes the Spooky Museum

October 07, 2017


The Bartow History Museum is being transformed into the Spooky Museum for the next Museum After Dark event, according to Trey Gaines, Director of the Museum. 

On Saturday, October 21, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., all fairies, pirates, monsters, princesses, and others of their ilk are invited to join us. “ A costume contest has been added to this year for all children 12 and under wishing to participate. 

The costumes should be kid friendly and can be store purchased or homemade. A First, Second, and Third place prize will be given for the judge’s favorite costumes. 

The contest begins at 5:30 p.m. Don’t have a costume, no problem, simply come as you are. Get your face painted, play games, create a craft, and partake of tasty treats, if you dare!

Visit the exhibit gallery to see some eerie museum visitors, creepy crawlies, and spooky surprises. “This is a night your kids won’t want to miss,” says Gaines. For more information on Spooky Museum, please visit

Price of admission ($6.50 for adults, $5.50 for students, and children 5 and under free) to the museum includes all activities for Spooky Museum. All Fraidy Cats welcome!
