If you have not taken the time to check out our local Natural History Museum with your kids you really should. They really go all out for Halloween.

What goes well with actual skeletons of dinosaurs? Ghosts, pumpkins, and other Halloween decorations.

The Naranjo Museum of Natural History has all of its exhibits decorated for the Halloween Season. Not too scary, just good family Halloween fun is waiting for you there.

Plan Your Visit 

The museum is open Monday - Saturday from 10 am - 6 pm, and Sunday from 1 pm - 6 pm. It takes a little over an hour to see the exhibits. They are on Highway 59/I69 at 5104 S 1st St, Lufkin, TX 75901.

No visitors will be admitted after 5 pm to give you a chance to see them all.  Tickets are $7.50 for adults and kids 4-18 are $5.

If you are a museum member it's free. If you have thought about becoming a member of the museum, it makes a great gift.
