“Last year’s ‘Haunted Museum’ proved to be a tremendous success with children and grown-ups,” noted museum director and chief curator Elizabeth Barker, “We couldn’t wait to repeat it. The Docents do a wonderful job leading art-looking and art-making activities tailored to the interests of a wide range of visitors. We hope many families will take advantage of Amherst College’s free on-campus weekend parking, and join the fun!”

Amherst College’s Mead Museum of Art will come alive with Halloween spirit on Saturday, October 29th during their free family-friendly Haunted Museum! The spookier bits of the museum’s collection will be on display for those who dare to see them. Discover art and culture on a candle-lit tour of the galleries or a spooky scavenger hunt.  All afternoon there will be fun family activities, as well, including mask making, face painting, and pumpkin carving!  You can even celebrate Halloween with your taste buds by enjoying delicious local cider and cider donuts.  The event is lead by the college’s student museum docents and takes place from 11am-3pm.  For more information, call the museum at 413-542-5123.
