Fright Night at the Museum
Fright at the Museum is a fundraiser for the museum. The museum board members decided to think outside the box when it came to fundraisers. The haunted house runs for 4 nights the week of Halloween. The goal of this event was to raise money for repairs as well as provide an event for the youth of the valley that was both safe and enjoyable. It has run every year since 2019 and each year it gets bigger and raises more for the museum. Fright at the Museum is staffed 100% by volunteers from the community.<a href="https://www.easternarizonamuseum.com">https://www.easternarizonamuseum.com</a>/
