At The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis they are eagerly awaiting the opening of the 48th annual Haunted House. The Children’s Museum Guild has been busy organizing for this year’s theme, Vampire Vacation!

The little vampire mascots, Vic and Viv, will be traveling all over the country visiting many “dead”stinations! Some of these spooky “dead”stinations are Count Rushmore, the Ghoulish Gate Bridge, Horrorwood, San Fangcisco, New Gore-leans, and much more!

If you dare to be scared, visit the Haunted House during Defender Direct’s Frightening Hours (this is when the lights are off in the Haunted House). The Haunted House also offers visitors the chance to visit during IPL’s Lights-On Hours (for children that scare easily).

The Haunted House runs October 15-31. Tickets can be purchased at Marsh Supermarkets and AAA locations as well as online at or by calling 317-334-4000. Tickets cost $5.50 at Marsh Supermarkets or $6.50 at the door.

As well as visiting Vampire Vacation, The Children’s Museum Guild offers other fun Halloween activities at the museum you don’t want to miss! These other activities include Friendly Feast with the Witches, a Family Late Night Adventure, and Scout Late-Night Adventures. Registration for any of these events can be done by phone at 317-334-4000.
