The University of California at Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science is reopening this weekend for some spooky Halloween fun after a 19-month COVID-19 shutdown.
Visitors are encouraged to come in costume to celebrate Halloween on Saturday and Sunday. Costumed visitors get free tickets to the 3D Theater and everyone can take pictures of their costumes in the Halloween photo booth. Other activities include hands-on science exhibits, trebuchet pumpkin catapulting and creepy critters.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Halloween activities are free with admission. Costumed visitors get free tickets to the 3D Theater. Tickets can be bought online in advance or at the door. General admission is $20 for ages 3 and up. Children 2 and younger receive free admission.
The Lawrence is located at 1 Centennial Drive, Berkeley. The museum does require visitors to wear face masks as a COVID-19 precaution.
