2nd Annual Fall Fest (with AMNH)
Saturday, October 14, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

In October 2016, Anniston Museum hosted its first Falling for Fun Fall Festival. Thanks to the support of our community, it was a great success with over 450 people attending! Knowing the community loves autumn just as much as we do, we are thrilled to announce our 2nd Annual Fall Festival! This year, the fall fun returns with even more oomph as we celebrate the beauty of nature and the leaves changing from green to a fire-like blaze, blue October skies, sweater weather, hot chocolate, Halloween, and more!

So what can you look forward to this year?

Exploring the world through Anniston Museum’s 8 Exhibit Halls, an abundance of live animals – including some creepy crawlers, thanks to the Alabama Herpetological Society and Noccalula Falls, hands-on wildlife education with the Sensory Safari Trailer, a haunted Bird of Prey trail, face painting, hay rides, trick-or-treating, a Halloween costume contest, and more!

Plus, we are happy to have Berman Museum join the festivities with Haunted History tours! The tours will take place on a fifteen minute rotation throughout the night. Haunted History entails a lights-out, lantern led guided tour through the Exhibit Halls focusing on macabre artifacts, local folklore, and historical figures. This night of horror is recommended for ages 10 and up. Anyone not up to braving the dark is welcome to enjoy Halloween cartoons in the lobby.                                                                                     

Shop a variety of vendors in both Museums Lobbies and purchase dinner for the family at the food vendors on site.

Tickets: $10/Adult; $8/Child; $8/Member Adult; $6/Member Child; Free/Children 0-3

Skip the line and pre-order your tickets today! Call 256-237-6766 to order tickets over the phone, or stop by the front desk the next time you visit us.
