What’s Halloween without spooky fun, creative costumes, and trick-or-treating? Add to that a real live turkey vulture, the chance to judge a jack-o-lantern carving contest, and a trek through the Draper Museum of Natural History, and you have the next Family Fun Day at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.
It’s all part of “Hootin’ Howlin’ Halloween” on Wednesday, October 31, 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. Families are encouraged to wear their costumes and come as a group, participating together in a variety of crafts and programs. The cost is $3 per child, with a special rate of $10 for the whole family.
The Historical Center plans Family Fun Days periodically throughout the year to welcome children and families to the museum and encourage them to feel comfortable there. The activities offer the chance to learn about the nature and culture of the West in a fun and engaging environment.

Since 1917, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West has been committed to the greatness and growth of the American West, keeping western experiences alive. The Center, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, weaves the varied threads of the western experience—history and myth, art and Native culture, firearms, and the nature and science of Yellowstone—into the rich panorama that is the American West.
