Join in for a special Mummies Night for the OI’s Centennial Year! Celebrate 100 years of mummies, tombs, and magic for our 20th annual family Halloween party. Costumes encouraged! Mummify a simulated mummy, take a mummy tour, or hear a mummy-tale. Make mummy crafts, compete in a Mummy Wrap Race, and catch a family photo. Play the game many a mummy has taken to his own tomb—Senet. And as always, in the galleries, King Tut’s monumental 17-foot-tall statue and our 40-ton Assyrian winged bull will lend a photogenic background for witches, vampires, monsters, princesses, or whatever your costume.

See Eventbrite for full event details. Scouts and other interested youth can get their OI mummy fun patch for attending this event. Patches available onsite.

Event details are subject to change. Please contact the event host to verify these details are accurate.
