RAFFMA, the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art at Cal State San Bernardino, invites families for a night of scary fun on Friday, Oct. 26, from 6-8 p.m.

Every year, RAFFMA turns down the lights and strings up the cobwebs for an educational evening inspired by the museum’s permanent display of ancient Egyptian art. This Halloween-alternative event consists of a spooky night tour, a museum scavenger hunt, crafts and a costume contest. Guests are strongly encouraged to come fully dressed in their best Halloween attire.

General admission to the event is $15 per family of four, $12 per family of three and $5 per individual. Friends of RAFFMA are free. For more information on joining friends of the museum, please call (909) 537-3373.

Families and friends of all ages are welcome to participate in this spine-chilling affair, but are warned that there are rumors of a mummy that lurks in the shadows of the museum after dark. For more information about RAFFMA’s Spooky Night, contact the museum’s education and outreach department at (909) 537-7783, or e-mail ptaylor@csusb.edu.
