Does turbulence give you terrors? Then this event might leave you with goosebumps. Enter the void of space, where fear takes flight at the “Museum of Fright.” 

Held every year during Halloween weekend since 2008, the Museum of Flight transforms its galleries with hair-raising activities and revelers. Kids can try and become Dr. Frankenstein themselves by engaging in hands-on science experiments. They can also visit the Mad Scientist’s booths to experience spirited demonstrations. For entertainment, there’ll be live music from the 8-Bit Brass Band, a cosplaying band who are born costumers. Expect some next-level outfits, like a drummer dressed as Darth Vader. Or a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle playing the trumpet? Oh! The day also includes a dance party held under the Blackbird spyplane

A few current Museum of Flight Fright exhibits:

Untold Stories: World War II at 75
The Museum of Flight commemorates the end of the War using artifacts and records from the Museum’s collection, highlighting the stories of lesser-known, diverse people who lived and died during the war years.

Art+Flight is a museum-wide, community-focused exhibition and celebration connecting the region’s vibrant art scene with its rich aerospace history.

Vietnam Divided: War Above Southeast Asia
The newest permanent installation in the Museum’s T.A. Wilson Great Gallery focuses specifically on the air war above Southeast Asia that ran from 1955-1975.

Sky-bots: A Look at Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Though Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), commonly called “drones,” have been around since the earliest days of aviation, their use increased dramatically in the first decade of the 21st century.
