No outside alcohol will be allowed into the museum.


Calling all ghosts and ghouls, monsters and mummies, witches and werewolves: Houston’s favorite Halloween party—the one and only Spirits & Skeletons—is back at HMNS! The entire museum is open for you to shake your stuff with a stegosaurus and get spellbound by bewitching gems, all to live music, two DJs and fantastic food trucks parked right outside. Whether you go with scary and spooky or fab and kooky—dress up and party the night away at HMNS. We’ll put a spell on you.

Featuring live music by Supernova and DJ Dame Hype

HMNS is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. With that in mind, the museum security staff has implemented additional security measures ahead of Saturday’s Spirits & Skeletons. We encourage attendees to arrive early to allow extra time to get into the special event. You and your belongings may be searched upon entry. If you elect not to consent to the searches, you will be denied entry into the museum.

For your safety, the following items are prohibited: any and all real or realistic looking weapons, backpacks, laser pens, noise makers. Please note that this is not a complete list and other items may be confiscated if they are deemed, at the sole discretion of HMNS and the HPD officers at the event, to be dangerous or disruptive.
