“Fright Night” hits the National Museum of Crime and Punishment

If Nightmare on Elm Street makes you yawn and miniature Snickers give you a toothache, then the zombies roaming around the National Museum of Crime & Punishment may be just the thing to give you a thrill. The spooky venue is being taken over by the creatures with their third annual “ Fright at the Museum: Dead Men Walking ” haunted house feature beginning Oct. 21-22, Oct. 27-29, and Halloween. The top floor of the venue will be transformed into a breeding ground for The Walking Dead, complete with snakes, spiders, and scare scenes to make the visit worth your while. Guests are also invited to dress up in costume for the occasion, but are prohibited from wearing masks.

The fright fest will kick off at 7 p.m. each night., running in 30 minute intervals until an hour prior to closing. Those who dare to enter must be 17 or older, unless with a parent or guardian. Tickets are $25 and can be bought online or in person,
