The Children’s Museum Guild’s Haunted House—Frightful Frontier

Now open!
Oct. 9–31, 2021

Round up the cowpokes and saddle up for a spook-tacular ride through the Frightful Frontier, The Children's Museum Guild's 57th Annual Haunted House. Chaos ensues once you board the last train to Tombtown, where goblins and monsters roam the Wicked West!

AES Indiana’s Lights-On Hours ($9)

Wednesday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and 3:30-6:30 p.m.
Thursday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Sunday, Noon-5 p.m.
Halloween Day, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Closed Mondays and Tuesdays

  • Includes fun, upbeat music with all lights turned up.
  • The same scary objects are in the house so can still be frightening for some children.
  • Friendly-faced greeters without Halloween masks are in each room of the house passing out treats to visitors similar to trick-or-treating (protective face masks will be worn at all times).
  • Children can play seek-and-find with pictures of the annual Haunted House mascot as they move through the rooms of the house to help play up the fun of each room.
  • Each room also features a Halloween-related fun fact to ask your child such as "how many bones are in the human body?" (A: 206!)

AAA Insurance’s Frightening Hours ($9)

Thursday-Saturday, 4-9 p.m.
Closed Mondays and Tuesdays

  • Includes spooky music and minimal lighting.
  • Haunters hide throughout the house to jump out and scare unsuspecting visitors.
  • Although visual effects are used to maximize the scare experience, the frightening-factor of the Haunted House focuses more on the "startle" rather than gore.
  • Many visitors will scream with surprise or fear as they move throughout the house.

All visitors 2 and older must wear a COVID protecting mask or face covering over their nose and mouth while indoors at the museum. Halloween costume masks are not viable alternatives. In addition, adults may not wear costume masks at all. Costume weapon props are not permitted. View all of our safety protocols here.
