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 25, from 8 p.m. until midnight. Molly & the Ringwalds perform 80s dance hits, and J Gracie Chavez and DJ Dame Hype spin tunes as 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—including H-town StrEats, The Waffle Bus, Good Dog Hot Dog, and creperie Lulu Blues—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.

Great Halloween party, made better because we were allowed into the paleontology hall. I enjoyed it, and I like the museum during normal times, as well. The Museum of Natural Science is a really great asset to Houston.
