Heritage Square Museum Halloween & Mourning Tours Overview

Heritage Square Museum invites you to join them for their annual Halloween & Mourning Tours. Visitors to the museum’s Victorian-era houses will find themselves immersed in the traditions surrounding death and mourning as they were practiced 100 years ago.

The Halloween & Mourning Tours are a living history program that puts guests in the middle of a superstitious Victorian-era society where death was never far behind. Witness a funeral procession as they bury a loved one, visit a fortune teller, learn about hair jewelry and mourning attire, and even participate in a seance!

The event generally takes place on the Saturday and Sunday before Halloween. Sunday is more kid-friendly: children from 2 to 12 play period games, make 19th century harvest crafts, trick or treat, and listen to scary tales.

Heritage Square Musuem Halloween & Mourning Movie Night

Heritage Square Museum also offers an annual Halloween and Mourning Movie Night in October, screening a classic horror film outdoors. The previously offered Safe Haven Trick-or-Treating on Halloween evenings has been discontinued.
