Halloween Activities
at The Strong© Museum

Saturday & Sunday, October 29 & 30: M is for Monster Weekend

Get ready for a ferociously fun time during M is for Monster Weekend at The Strong museum Saturday and Sunday, October 29 and 30.  Stop by Elmo’s World to meet the furry red monster and play a round of Monster Bingo. Take pictures and speak with fantastical puppet characters and meet other silly monsters. Delight in storybook tales about friendly beasts, design your own monster using a dice game, and craft a creature on a coffee filter and learn how to make it vanish.
