Halloween Spree

We have reimagined Halloween Spree to be a month-long celebration with a focus on spooky science and creepy creatures! Learn about bats and make your own citizen science journal to log your bat observations, meet live bats with Tampa Bay Bats every Saturday, and enjoy spooky decorations all month long. Costumes are encouraged!

October 31, 10am-1pm
$5 Admission | Free for Members

Show off your most creative costume at our Sensory-Friendly Halloween Spree! Bring your little ghouls and goblins to GCM to enjoy safe, indoor trick-or-treating, and more Halloween-themed activities! Come explore the Museum with lights and sounds turned down and sensory adapted tools, special programs, and community resources at your fingertips. It’s during this time that children and their families can experience the Museum and unite with others on a similar journey. Reservations are encouraged, but not required.

Every year, GCM participates in the Teal Pumpkin Project. Keep an eye out for stations with a teal pumpkin where your little ones will receive non-edible goodies. The Teal Pumpkin Project is a movement to raise awareness of food allergies and to create a safer, more inclusive Halloween for all trick-or-treaters. Putting a teal pumpkin on your doorstep will let trick-or-treaters know that your house is food allergy-friendly.
