Haunted House at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis | 2021

If your kids are ready for some frightful fun, the annual Children’s Museum Haunted House is a great place to ease them into the fun of being spooked. There are also fun and not frightening lights on hours for those who aren’t quite ready to be scared.

The 2021 Haunted House at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is a nod to the wild, wild west. Cowboys and cowgirls won’t want to miss this family vacation gone wrong, October 9-31, 2021.

From The Bony Express to the Witchin’ Post, Not-So-Okay-Corral, Ghost Town Rd. and Boo Hill Cemetery to name just a few disturbing tourist destinations, youngin’s and oldins’ alike will shake in their cowboy boots until the last grizzled ghost is gone. Don’t have too much fear however; The Children’s Museum Guild’s 57th Annual Haunted House offers AES Indiana’s Lights-On Hours (for children who scare easily) and AAA Insurance’s Frightening Hours (with the lights off, for children who dare to be scared). Tickets are $9 and are available online. Members save 10%.

The Frightful Frontier Haunted House is the main event but there are plenty of other rip-roarin’ opportunities cowpokes can saddle up for during October.
