Join us for a spooky event highlighting the “monsters” and superstitions that have called East Tennessee home over the years. From the wampus cat to eerie Victorian mourning traditions, we’ll delve into the region’s history of sightings and folklore!
The event will feature a variety of Halloween-themed children’s games, crafts, and storytelling. Children will trick-or-treat at various stops around the East Tennessee History Center, and costume contests will take place on the hour with prizes for most creative, funniest, and scariest costume, so dress to impress!
Museum admission is free during Monsters at the Museum. Exhibits currently on view include the feature exhibition "Shaver: An Artist of Rare Merit," an "East Tennessee Streetscape and Corner Drug Store," and "Voices of the Land: The People of East Tennessee", a look at 300 years of history.
