WEST CHESTER, PA — The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center in West Chester, PA, is adding a spooky twist to its helicopter display this October. On Saturday, October 28, 2023, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, the museum invites families to its thrilling “Haunted Helicopters” event.
Located at 1220 American Blvd., the American Helicopter Museum is the country’s leading aviation museum dedicated solely to helicopters. Since its establishment in 1996, the non-profit organization has been home to over 35 civilian and military helicopters, autogiros, and convertiplanes. The museum, nestled in the Philadelphia region known for its industry innovators, provides an enriching educational experience for all ages.
This Halloween, the museum is set to entertain families with a unique blend of education and holiday-themed fun. Children under 13 who arrive dressed in their Halloween costumes will receive a free treat from the Museum Store. To ensure inclusivity, the museum has thoughtfully chosen a non-edible treat, making it possible for all children to participate without concern for dietary restrictions.
But there’s a catch – or should we say, a trick? To receive their treat, children must complete a scavenger hunt that will take them on an exciting journey around the museum. This interactive activity is designed not only to be enjoyable but also to encourage children to engage with the museum’s exhibits and learn more about the fascinating world of helicopters.
So why not kick-start your Halloween celebrations with a visit to the American Helicopter Museum’s ‘Haunted Helicopters’ event? With its family-friendly environment and engaging activities, it promises to be an evening of fun, frights, and flights!
