BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is celebrating Halloween for the rest of the week with their “Owl-O-Ween” celebration.

This year’s “Owl-O-Ween” is different than in years past due to COVID-19, but the staff at the museum still promise to bring a week of fun and educational experiences for everyone.

“It’s extremely important to us to be a part of the community,” said Garret Leopold, the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History Museum Educator. “In the past, we were able to do a lot of different interesting and fun ways of doing things, but this year we have had to adapt a little bit, still find out ways to be a part of the community while offering things that are safe and fun for the public to come.”

At “Owl-O-Ween” guests can expect engaging exhibits where guests can take part in a scavenger hunt throughout the galleries.

Plus, they can go into the Discovery Room and participate in the “owl stations” and see live animals like snakes, spiders, turtles, lizards, and more.

During “Owl-O-Ween,” costumes are encouraged, and those who come in bootiful costumes will get a goodie bag!

Admission prices into the museum is $5 for adults, $4 for students and seniors, members & children 3 and under are free.

The museum is open until 5 p.m., Tuesday - Saturday and is located at 3232 Briarcrest Drive in Bryan.
