Philly is a great place for Halloween, no matter what the age group. But if you have young ones who are looking for the in on the best places to score the best candy, we have the roundup for you.
On the evening of October 24, entry to the Philadelphia Museum of Art is pay-what-you-wish admission. Characters from famous paintings will walk the galleries, leading your kids on a rhyming scavenger hunt. Pumpkin carving and art making are also on the agenda, all inspired by works in the museum. It’s the perfect opportunity for young children to learn about art, all while getting their fill of Halloween fun.
Your next stop should be the haunted high seas, with Moshu-Boo on Friday, October 26. The Moshulu at Penn’s Landing will be transformed into a pirate ship, where costumed characters will guide kids through a series of Halloween-themed experiences, including a pumpkin patch, hot chocolate tasting, and even a buffet.
If your kids can’t get enough of seaside adventure, they’ll have another shot on Saturday, with Seaport Spooktacular. Taking place at the Independence Seaport Museum’s Cruiser Olympia, stand-out features include the mad scientist lab and the maritime-themed costume contest.
On Saturday and Sunday, you can choose from two different adventure stories. The first option is Boo at the Zoo, where young ones can go on a trick-or-treat safari. The next option is Legoland’s Brick-or-Treat, which stands out for the LEGO pumpkin patch on display.
When it comes to the big day in question, Halloween itself, there are still plenty of good neighborhoods for classic door-knocking fun. Check out this excellent roundup on mommypoppins.com for the safest, friendliest places for little trick-or-treaters.
