If you’ve visited the Molly Brown House Museum before, you’ll be impressed with the delightfully spooky transformation the home takes with an ambiance of authentic, historical charm and a sophisticated splash of horror. Excerpts from classic tales are read by professional actors and volunteers under flickering candlelight as haunted tour groups are guided from one room to the next. The setting is casual, intimate and yet charmingly eerie.
Several of last year’s exceptionally skilled cast has returned – along with some delightfully entertaining fresh talent – to share stories from the writings of long-dead authors such as HG Wells and Edgar Allan Poe. Your kids aren’t even going to notice that this is an educational and cultural experience with the spooky atmosphere and frightful readings…and they can even get comfortable on the floor! I have had the privilege of reviewing Victorian Horrors for the past two years — my seven-year-old son has accompanied me both times. While some details of the stories are beyond his understanding, he enjoys the enthusiasm and animation of the storytelling and an evening in a haunted mansion.
I think you’re going to love this ghoulish experience – just be sure to bring someone you love because you’re going to want to cuddle them real close!
