Halloween Week at the Wisconsin Historical Museum

Enjoy a week of activities for all ages interested in the odd and peculiar! This year we explore Wisconsin's connections to Spiritualism, the one-time fastest-growing religion in the United States; and to Orson Welles and his brilliant radio broadcast, War of the Worlds. Create panic in America with "out-of-this-world" arts and crafts for the kids, join in the hunt for Wisconsin's spookiest stories and places, and meet some colorful characters from Wisconsin's past wandering our exhibit floors.
