Press Release

Fright at the Museum

Join the Texas Memorial Museum on Sunday, October 30th from 1-4:45 pm for Fright at the Museum: We're out for BLOOD!

Dress up your little goblins and celebrate Halloween at Austin's very own dinosaur graveyard! Join our spooky scientists in exploring the mysterious side of Texas' natural history. Feel frightful fish from the ocean depths; be rattled by slithery snakes of Central Texas; and feast your eyes on our bizarre bugs while we serve up creepy, crawly critters for your culinary delight.

Free event for the entire family!

This year, we've partnered with The Blood Center of Central Texas and are hosting a blood drive at the Museum. You too can be a fang-tastic blood donor!

Blood drives save thousands of lives annually… lives that are in your hands. Below are the details of an upcoming blood drive at the Texas Natural Science Center/Texas Memorial Museum.

Date: 10/30/2011
Location: 2400 Trinity St.
