Halloween at The Durham

Spooktacular Events

Celebrate Halloween at The Durham Museum! We’ve got plenty of spooky good fun planned for the whole family. All activities are FREE for museum members and regular admission applies for non-members, unless otherwise noted. Get ready to explore some haunted history behind the walls of historic Union Station this October!


The Durham’s historic train cars get a spooky twist for Halloween season! Cobwebs, skeletons, spiders and more have taken over our haunted fleet. Don’t worry … it’s not TOO scary! Tour the trains October 24-29 and 31.


The crowd-favorite Dancing Zombies, courtesy of UNO’s The Moving Company, are back at the museum for a 10th year. They’ll perform during The Great HALL-oween Haunt on Tuesday, October 24 (Performance will begin at 6:45PM). And because zombies are so hard to scare away, they’ll be back in the afternoons during Hallo-weekend on October 28-29 (Performances will begin at 12:45PM each day).
