The Waukesha County Museum invites you to its annual Night at the Museum beginning Friday evening. This year's theme is Wild West Showdown.
Based on the popular movie where the exhibits come to life after the sun goes down, the Waukesha County Museum brings local history to life within the downtown Waukesha museum's walls.
This year families are invited to romp through the Wild West as Annie Oakley guides your wagon train around exhibits meeting historical figures along the way. Watch for Pecos Bill, Davy Crockett and even corral broncos with Increase Lapham.
During your 40-minute journey you will work together to solve clues and puzzles to find the stolen horses and save the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show.
Waukesha County Museum's Night at the Museum is family friendly and appropriate for all ages. The tour is not scary or violent. Tickets are sold at the door and tours leave every 15 minutes.
Night at the Museum runs from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. weekends Oct. 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 and 26 at the museum, 101 W. Main St., Waukesha. Cost: $5 per person. Families can participate in extra activities including craft projects as they wait for their tour to begin.
