Dates: SEPTEMBER 28 - OCTOBER 31, 2023.
Thursday-Sunday, plus October 30 & 31.
Just in time for Halloween, the Natural History Museum will transform its Nature Gardens into a hauntingly whimsical interactive light-up experience for all ages. Featuring familiar sights for long-time Boney Island fans – skeletons performing rope tricks, levitating through hoops, shadow puppetry and more – NHM will put its own spin on the event with artistic performances, real fossils, live animal presentations, trick-or-treating, and other ghoulishly glowing installations. Explore the garden paths, as creepy crawlies, silly skeletons and carnivores from the Cretaceous abound!
About Boney Island
Boney Island was created by The Simpsons producer, Rick Polizzi, for his family more than 20 years ago. A play on Brooklyn’s iconic Coney Island, It grew from a front yard display to a huge affair in Griffith Park with a cult-like following of Halloween lovers of all ages. The attraction closed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, after a three-year hiatus, NHM is excited to partner with Boney Island to bring back the crowd-pleasing event.
