The science-savvy party planners of the Museum of Natural Science kick off Halloween weekend with a costume-optional party for adults on Friday, October 26, from 8 p.m. until midnight. Beloved local five-piece band Molly & The Ringwalds returns from last year’s bash to shake off goosebumps conjured up by a bug chef and zombie caricaturist with '80s hits ranging from “Material Girl” to “Billie Jean.” Fresh-faced magician Ben Jackson performs ghostly acts of apparition while cracking wise to help suss out real ghosts, who have no sense of humor. A cash bar and a caravan of food trucks that include Monster PBJ and Korean-Mexican fusion artists Coreanos fuel the fun.

Houston Museum of Natural Science

Seven days a week, the Houston Museum of Natural Science cultivates knowledge with interactive exhibits that shuttle minds into such far-flung realms as tropical rainforests and outer space. Permanent exhibit halls house everything from the skeletons of brachiosauruses in the recently expanded Morian Hall of Paleontology to artifacts from ancient Egypt and the Americas.

Housed inside three stories of glass, the museum's Cockrell Butterfly Center habitat teems with more than 1,500 winged wonders from around the globe, which frolic around a 50-foot waterfall, and flutter through exotic plants. Visitors can also gaze skyward in the Burke Baker Planetarium, which casts more than 10 daily shows with curve-mirror projection technology. Eyes marvel at the planetarium's 30'x18' full-dome digital theater, capable of transporting families to the aurora borealis in the Arctic Circle or to the nougat-flavored center of a black hole.
