Calling All Creatures!
Is walking with zombies not scary enough? How about an event that will invade your happy space and fill it with nightmares for weeks to come? The Museum of Fear, our haunted house fundraiser that takes up the third floor of the museum, has grown bigger and scarier every year since its creation in 2009. This year, we have professional actors, movie quality set designs, dense fog, and putrid smells to bring you a sinister and scary experience that ensures you will never be the same.

The Museum of Fear will haunt your dreams through Halloween night. Check out our webpage at to dig up more information about specific dates and times on when you can become a victim of the museum’s biggest attraction of the year!

Even Zombies Need Exercise
We’re inviting zombies of all ages to don their most gruesome makeup and shuffle along the streets of downtown Lafayette on Saturday, October 26 for our second-annual ZombieWalk! Stave off the craving for brains with drinks from Schilling and tasty morsels from some of Lafayette’s favorite food trucks. Participate in a costume contest for the best zombie, enter a raffle for a “bug-out bag,” and join us for an evening that is sure to be a frighteningly good time!

Check out our Facebook page, where we’ll be scaring up some more information as the event gets closer. Start practicing your best groan, get your flesh in place, and try not to die (again) from the suspense!
