OKLAHOMA CITY – Attention Ghouls and goblins, Halloween is just around the corner and for many neighborhoods this means costume clad kids will soon be going door-to-door seeking treats. At Science Museum Oklahoma this time of year means taking the fright out of science and exposing all the fun to be had with Bright Night of Not-So-Frightening Fun.


“Science can be scary and in fact frightening for some, which makes Science Museum Oklahoma a perfect place to go on Halloween. Our goal is to show families that not only is science not-so-frightening, it is also really fun,” said Suzette Ellison, vice president of programs and interpretation at Science Museum Oklahoma.


The Bright Night of Not-So-Frightening Fun takes place on Friday October 28th starting at 6:00 p.m. and the fun goes all night to Saturday October 29th at 8:30 a.m. Guests can expect three haunted labs filled with creepy crawly “Not-So-Frightening” hands-on science experiments, zombie face painting, fun tricks, tasty treats and much more. Although the event will last all night, guests who prefer their own bed are welcome to stay late and head home at their leisure. Select museum exhibit areas will be available for guests who would like to see what a night at the museum is really like to sleep in


“If you and your family are looking for a fun, safe alternative to trick-or-treating Halloween weekend then come join us on Friday night at Science Museum Oklahoma, you can even stay the night!” said Drew Smith, Bright Night Coordinator.
