Galaxy Frights | Kids Out and About Houston

Galaxy Frights

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 10/31/2021
Launch your Halloween with a boo-m at our Galaxy Frights experience every Saturday and Sunday in October. These spectacularly spooky (but not scary) space experiences will be socially distanced.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.



Our creepy cosmic activities include:

  •  Dress up as your favorite character and join the costume parades in the main plaza.*
  •  See Spidernaut, NASA’s spider-like robot prototype.
  •  Visit multiple candy stations for socially distanced and safe trick or treating.
  •  Watch our original "Facing Fear" film with NASA astronauts, engineers, and flight controllers sharing how they confront and overcome some of the scariest aspects of space exploration in Mission Briefing Center.
  •  Become a mad scientist in our family-friendly Pop-up Science Labs. Learn about surface tension through a dry ice experiment, discover black holes, and explore mutations.
  •  Help decorate our monster-sized mural in The Food Lab. This massive space mural has planets, meteors, astronauts, and more ready to be filled with your colorful creativity.
  •  Navigate your way through an inflatable maze on The Food Lab patio.
  •  Take a photo at our Commander Quest selfie station and rotating, inflatable Moon in Astronaut Gallery.
  •  Explore space science with experts during virtual presentations Sundays at 1 p.m. in Space Center Theater.
  •  Hear from NASA astronauts every Saturday during Astronaut Mission Memories at 11:30 a.m. and 1:20 p.m. in Space Center Theater or enhance your experience with Breakfast with an Astronaut Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. in The Food Lab. Additional ticket is required.
  •  Enjoy Halloween music, spooky space sounds and kinetic lights in the main plaza. The spooky sounds include a complication of radio emissions converted into radio signals, including lightning on Jupiter, the light curve of stars and passing comets.
  •  Compete with friends and family in cornhole as well as giant versions of Jenga, and Connect 4, in Independence Plaza.
