Science can be a frightening word, particularly when it’s listed under “cause of death” and followed by three exclamation points. Overcome your fear of knowledge with today’s Groupon to The Haunted Museum at SciTech Hands On Museum in Aurora, open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., from October 14–30. Choose between the following options:

  • For $15, you get admission for two (a $30 value).
  • For $29, you get admission for four (a $60 value).

Throughout the Halloween season, mad scientists overrun a section of SciTech Hands On Museum to construct a haunted laboratory. The 20- to 25-minute, ghoul-infested journey hijacks 200 of the museum’s interactive exhibits and exploits the brainpower of the museum’s Fermilab physicist founders to create an experience as terrifyingly educational as a pre-calc class taught by a wild boar. Adults and older children brave enough to step across the spooky threshold will encounter wispy tendrils of smoke and fluttering strobe lights winding up and down the museum’s two floors. Bubbling beakers, freakish goblins, the George Foreman Grill, and other byproducts of experiments gone horribly awry loom in the museum’s shadowy corridors. Once troops have braved the Haunted Museum, the main museum awaits, where guests can interact with noncursed exhibits or slip into the gift shop or café.

Customer Reviews

great for one time
Sabeen K. · January 11, 2017
My almost three year-old and kindergartener had a great time. Most of the second floor exhibits were too advanced for them, but they enjoyed them anyway.
