    Do your kids have what it takes to be a star pupil this Halloween? Eureka! in Halifax is inviting half term visitors to enrol in ‘Ghoul School’ to meet their peculiar professors to find out, every day from 20th October to 2nd November. Take part in a science class with a difference in Dr Frankenstein’s Science Lab. Cast spells and mix potions with a bewitching teacher, join the resident werewolf for some key survival skills (and hope it isn't a full moon!) and get your grisly-groove on in a spectacularly spooky disco. On weekdays during half term, the museum will be opening its doors early at 9.30am and visitors will get the chance to snuggle up to Beastie - a big cuddly monster who just wants a hug! Visitors are encouraged to come dressed in their most boo-tiful or frightfully freaky costume to really get into the spirit! All activities are included in the price of admission or free to Eureka! annual pass holders.
