3rd Annual Fall Fest
October 13 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm$10
Everyone throw on your best Halloween costume and make your way to Anniston Museums and Gardens on Saturday, October 13 for the 3rd Annual Fall Fest! This year, Fall Fest is incorporating the community’s favorite things into one spooktacular event. Join us as we celebrate the break in the Alabama summer heat and welcome the crisp air of autumn with live animal encounters thanks to the Alabama Herpetological Society and Dustbunnies and Dog Hair Petting Zoo. Get an up close and personal view of beautifully mounted specimen in the Sensory Safari Trailer, talk safety with our local firemen from the Anniston Fire Department and White Plains Fire Department, and enjoy a bouncy house and face painting. Are you afraid of the dark? The lights will be out in the Anniston Museum of Natural History’s Exhibit Halls to offer a different guest experience as you Explore Your World. We encourage everyone to take a walk and see what your museum looks and sounds like at night. Flashlights will be available for guests to use, but must be returned when exiting the Exhibit Halls. But wait! There’s more… the Berman Museum will transform from the museum of history to the museum of mystery! Sometimes the histories of objects obtained by museums are a little weird, strange, and even spooky at times. This tour is self-guided and offered throughout Fall Fest. The galleries will have low lighting and guests will move at their own pace. You will never know what you will discover around the next corner, so stay on the path! Tickets go on sale October 1 and we recommend you purchase tickets ahead of time to skip that line! All proceeds benefit AMNH’s Education Department so that we may continue to bring you fun, educational workshops, programs, and tours. Tickets on sale: October 1, 2018 Ticket Prices: $10/Non-Members; $8/Members; Children Ages 0-3 Free *Museums will close at 3:00; last admission at 2:30
