Adult Nights: Halloween at Hogwarts


Step through to Platform 9¾ and be transported into the magical world of Harry Potter. Practice your Defense Against the Dark Arts, vanish with our Invisibility Cloak or take in a game of Quidditch to make this a night to Remembrall!

Beer, wine, cocktails and food will be available for purchase. You must be at least 21 years old to attend. A photo ID is required for entry.

Become a Catalyst member and get access to sold out events, including Halloween at Hogwarts! Enjoy the first round of drinks on us! For just $12 a month, you and a “plus one” will receive two free drink tickets at each Adult Night, a complimentary pair of tickets to one Adult Night of your choice and more!

All proceeds benefit the Friends of the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. Proceeds from Friends’ activities — including gift shop sales, memberships and events — all support Museum programs, research and exhibits.

Costume and Mask Policy

  • For the safety of all visitors, we ask that guests who wear a full face mask or other items that completely  obscure the face remove those items during check in.
  • Costumes should not contain any elements which resemble, or could easily be mistaken for, an actual weapon.
  • The museum reserves the right to turn away any guest with a costume that we deem offensive or unsafe.
