Spooky Science and Fairy Fun
at Annual Not-So-Spooky Spectacular
(Dover, NH / October 27, 2017) – Halloween at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire is more about fun than fright. Families can come in costume to explore exhibits like “Cave Explorer’s Bat Cave,” “Dino Detective,” or “Green Screen Adventures in Travel.” The resident “Wacky Scientist,” will do some fantastical experiments four times throughout the day. Visitors can stop into a Fairy Circle to make fairy doors and friendly spiders. Kids can even get their faces painted. All the fun is free with museum admission.
