Every year, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis plays host to one of the most popular children’s haunted houses in the world. This haunted house is special because it’s executed by a crafty troop of women who are a part of the Children’s Museum Guild. Every year, the annual theme is selected by the head witches, members of the guild who take turns being in charge. Last year, the theme was Hotel of Spells and it was a hit with those seeking spook and gore. The 2020 theme for The Children’s Guild’s Haunted House was to be Frightful Frontier.
2020 Haunted House Canceled
According to communication to sponsors of the Children’s Museum Guild Haunted House, the popular event will not take place in 2020. Due to COVID-19 and concerns for public health, the Children’s Museum Guild has postponed the 2020 Haunted House. Instead, during the month of October, the Children’s Museum Guild will host a new event that will take place outdoors in the Riley’ Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience, pending changing health guidelines. More information will be available in September.
Currently, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is allowed admission at 25%, a switch from the 50% capacity that they were permitted to run at prior to the Governor’s call for more strict rules to drive down the increased cases of COVID-19.
