New Jersey State Museum is horrified to bring you its annual Laser Halloween show! This terrifyingly fun laser experience will send chills up your spine as you witness prowling vampires and haunting demons. Dazzling lights jump out from the darkness in fun renditions of seasonal music such as Purple People Eater and Monster Mash. Laser Halloween is a ghoulish way to celebrate the Halloween season … if you dare! Suitable for general audiences. Please note: some songs may contain lyrics or images considered scary by very young visitors. The show runs at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays during the month of October.

If you like laser shows, be sure to check out Laser Holiday Magic! appearing at the Planetarium in November. The new full-spectrum laser beams dance along with dazzling animated laser effects set to popular holiday music such as Winter Wonderland, Frosty the Snowman and many more. Enjoy a unique, festive experience under the stars at New Jersey’s largest full dome planetarium. Suitable for general audiences.
