As darkness descends, we dare you to ride on our scary Halloween Specials and listen to terrifying tales from the ghosts of Stephenson Railway Museum. 

We've got loads of spooktacular activities going on around the Museum, including hunt the witch, spell making, gruesome crafts and  bloodcurdling storytelling. Are you ready to be unnerved by spooky science demos and magical illusions? 

This event is suitable for all ages. Hair-raising fun for all the family!

Come dressed to spook and win! Fancy dress competition

Dress up in your creepiest costume - we want to be scared witless by lots of witches, ghosts and ghouls! Take photos of you and your family at the museum, check in to our Facebook page and post your shots. The best costume, chosen by the Stephenson team, will win a family season ticket, with a family day ticket for the runner up.
