Halloween Event 19/10 – 03/11

Our Halloween Event of 2019 is over. Please come back later for more information about the 2020 Halloween Event. The Historium's current offer can be found on our website.

Boo! Halloween at the Historium!

This autumn, the Historium is celebrating Halloween again. From Saturday 19 October till Sunday 3 November, a hundred pumpkins, cobwebs, bats, eerie lights and appropriate music will make for a spooky atmosphere. If you dare, you can combine your Historium visit with a visit to the Torture Museum or spine-chilling Virtual Reality games in the Laborium. Or perhaps you would prefer an evening stroll through the city? If so, sign up for our Dark City Walk, led by a local guide, every evening at 6h00 pm. For the kids there is also a nice Halloween Trail: a family trail with Halloween Quiz and a nice surprise… trick or treat!

During the Halloween period, the Family Trail is being temporarily replaced by the Halloween Trail.
