Wales set to celebrate spookiest month of year, here is list of scariest museums to visit


The Welsh museum festival offers a variety of events in museums across Wales. Events include science, crafts, lectures and conservation sessions.

Head to The Silver Mountain Experience near Aberystwyth is famous for some top Halloween action. 


There’s a great mixture of events, depending on your ‘prepared-to-be-scared’ level – from not-so-scary fancy dress and ‘Trick or Treat trails starting from 22 October – 6 November for a terrifying ‘Terror Mountain’ for over 12s (21, 22, 27 – 29 and 31 October 2022).

Here is a list of Welsh museums that one can visit to enjoy the spookiest month of the year:-

Halloween at Gwrych Castle

There’s all the fun of the day and an illuminated trail during the nighttime. To make the extra night special, there’s The Haunted House, where you can access the sleeping quarters last used by the I’m A Celebrity Campmates.

 Encounter ghouls, ghosts and spiders in the bonus spooky Halloween Zones. This will be an additional cost payable on the day if you enter! Buy Tickets for The Haunted Castle and Spooktacular Funfair.
