Spooky Science Nights return October 19, 25 and 26, from 5:30 to 9:30 pm, with a brand-new tour on the Screamship Mather! Explore the ship with young ones during the Little Goblins Tour, or experience the stuff nightmares are made of during the Terror Tour.

For families looking for an overnight experience, our Fright Night Family Sleepover returns on Friday, October 18, from 6 pm to 10 am (the next day). It’s sure to spook family members of all ages as guests spend the night among their favorite exhibits, dissect an owl pellet, have fun with a Halloween-themed egg drop, play with slime and oozing pumpkins in the Mad Scientist lab, watch the OMNIMAX movie, Dinosaurs Alive!, and gain free general admission to the Science Center the entire next day. This overnight event includes a late-night snack and a light breakfast the next morning. Perfect for families with kids ages 6-12. Cost is $40 per person ($35 members).
“This year, the big draw is our brand-new Screamship Mather tours, which we’re offering on the Great Lakes freighter located behind the Science Center. It’s unlike any other Halloween experience in the area,” said Dante Centuori, director of creative productions, Great Lakes Science Center. “We’re keeping it little kid-friendly for the first two hours of each night, but after 7:30 pm, all bets are off and expect to be scared!”
