The Haunted Museum

Where: The Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center
Journey through the museum’s creepy underground hallways, intricate mazes, secret passageways, and several themed rooms that rival scenes from Hollywood horror classics.
Don’t be fooled into thinking this is your average haunted house experience. The Haunted Museum is the premier destination for thrill-seekers and museum enthusiasts whose taste for entertainment runs…dark. Before embarking on your eerie journey, enjoy spooktacular refreshments at the museum.
The Haunted Museum opens nightly at 6 PM on October 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, and 29. Our last tour will be at approximately 9 PM. Bring a friend or a group of up to six people. We may split up your group if you purchase more than six tickets. We will not combine separate groups.
The not-so-spooky haunted museum will be from 3-5 PM in conjunction with Wenatchee Downtown Association’s Trick-or-Treat the Avenue event on Halloween from 3–5 PM. This event will give younger kids, families, and those not quite ready for the full Haunted Museum experience a chance to enjoy a less spooky haunted museum. Wear your costume and explore the Haunted Museum with the lights on to find all the Treat Spots scattered throughout the building.
Tickets are $15 each when you pre-register and $20 at the door. Just beware, wait times may vary, and tickets have been known to sell out quickly. Purchase online now to save $5 on your ticket and secure your spot.
Don’t miss your chance to experience the ultimate spooky thrills at the Haunted Museum!
