Ages 18 and under with their adults
Scare yourself silly at our annual Hallowe’en party! Wear your costume, bring your grown-up, and join us inside the Museum and outside in the courtyard, where we're celebrating the New-York Historical exhibition Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere.
In case of bad weather, activities—but not the ponies, unfortunately—will be moved inside the Museum.
Among the activities in store:
- Get a ride on one of two visiting ponies, Fudge and KitKat (Outdoor courtyard, weather permitting)
- Create your own horse on a stick (Outdoor courtyard)
- Pick and decorate pumpkins from our patch (Outdoor courtyard)
- Play "Pin the Tail on the Horse" (Lower-level classroom)
- Create your own candy bags (Lower-level classroom)
- Listen to spooky stories (DCHM Library)
- Craft secret messages with our Living Historian spymaster (Lower-level classroom)
- Trick-or-treat for candy (Everywhere!)
Every year, New-York Historical's beloved statues of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass get into the Hallowe'en spirit with our Statue Costume Contest. Voting has closed, but come see the winning costumes in person on Oct. 27!
