Gather up your miniature ghosts and goblins and head over to the AACA Museum in Hershey for a bit of Halloween fun! All visitors 12 and under will be eligible to participate in the AACA Museum’s “Trunk or Treat” program included with museum admission. We will offer a special $7 admission price for everyone on October 24th.

The first stop will be craft tables to decorate their own Treat bags using various car and Halloween stamps, stickers, markers and more. Once they’ve personalized their own treat bag, the hunt will begin to locate a variety of “trunk or treat” spots within the main and lower levels of the Museum. Treats will be given to each child 12 and under at each of these treat locations throughout the museum provided by The Hershey Company.

Halloween themed videos will be played in the indoor Drive-In theater and a display of hearse vehicles will be available for viewing so everyone can get in the spirit.

Don’t miss the inflatable haunted house complete with our own resident witch – a visitor favorite!

Special note: We are asking all miniature ghosts, goblins, pirates and more to leave any sharp or pointed costume accessories at home so as not to injure other guests or Museum vehicles.

The Future is Now at the AACA Museum

AdImage

The AACA Museum is turning back the hands of time this summer. Along with our A Family Affair: Station Wagons exhibit, we thought it would fun to honor the 30th Anniversary of the “Back to the Future” movies. The year 2015 was the year they traveled to in the original “Back to the Future” movie at the end of Part 1 and again in Part 2. We will feature a “Back to the Future” tribute car – an original DeLorean that has been hand crafted to look like the original movie car. There will also be concept prints to show the progression of this tribute car to the finished product.
In addition to the tribute car, the display will include several original pieces of time machines used on screen, production photos used by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) to make the scale model, original handwritten notes by the filmmakers who built the original car and even two original film blue prints. ILM created a flying DeLorean time machine for the end of the first movie. For the second film, ILM modified the same model by adding an interior and miniature figure of Doc Brown and Marty McFly.
