Halloween Happenings

It’s one of the Museum’s favorite times of the year, and though we will not be operating the Haunted Hospital to be mindful of Public Health and general safety, we will have holiday fun for everyone on All Hallows Eve! Please note that both events listed here will be held on October 31, 2021. We can’t wait to see you!
Come on up to the hill (Fir St leading up to the Museum) for some Trick-or-Treat fun with our neighbors and the museum staff! There will be spooky decorations, games, and best of all, candy! We look forward to hanging out with you, and your families and friends then! Recommended for ages 12 and under, 4pm to 6pm.
This event is FREE!
After all the fun for the little ones is done, the ghouls and goblins will be out to play in our answer to a pandemi-fied Halloween experience: Night of the Telluride Undead! Follow the legend of Left Lucy Walker (our very own Franken-Museum Creation!) on an immersive, puzzling quest through Telluride History for a chance at prizes and glory!
This event is recommended for ages 13+. 
Please register in advance in either groups or as an individual, $50.00 for a team of 6 or $10.00 per person. Tickets available online at
