      Twilight Tales: Tales of Mystery & the Macabre
    • Thursday, October 27, 2016
    • Spoken word artists perform in the dramatic atmosphere of the museum's original central court. Just in time for Halloween, spoken word artist Bill Wood performs stories guaranteed to make your skin crawl, inspired by objects in the museum's collections such as a vampire killing kit, "witch" doctor's cane, and the inkwell of Edgar Allan Poe. Wood weaves these artifacts imaginatively into his own entertaining narratives.
