Annual Halloween Festival

Join the Museum for this annual Springfield tradition. The Museum is partnering with the genH Coalition to present fun and educational natural science and health activities for children ages 12 and under. Children will learn about heart health from a dissected pig  heart, explore a bat cave, play games, and more. New this year, players from the Springfield Jr. Blues will get kids moving with a fun Halloween hockey activity course. Live entertainment will include:

  • Magic with Eldon Roark at 12:30 & 2:30 p.m. and 
  • Comedic juggling by Troy Roark at 1:30 & 3:30 p.m.
Each child will receive small prizes and healthy snacks and will be eligible to win door prizes such as fishing poles, toys, books, and other educational and recreational items, thanks to donations from many area businesses.

Proceeds will support educational programs at the Museum throughout the year. For more information, contact Elizabeth Bazan at or (217) 782-5993.
