About this project

We're making the first ever, one of a kind TRAVELING HALLOWEEN MUSEUM!

That's right!  We're taking Halloween out to the people in a little tiny traveling gypsy caravan.  Sound crazy?  Oh, we know.  But think about how cool it would be to see Halloween's history pull up in your town...or haunted house...or fundraiser...or school...or backyard! 

We plan on having different exhibits for different aspects of Halloween's history-like the origin of Halloween, other holidays (like the Day of the Dead) that share similar themes, the pop-culture fascination with witches, the history of trick-or-treating, world-wide beliefs in spirits and demons, stories about the undead, why we wear costumes on Halloween AND, BEST OF ALL the "black case"-look if you DARE!

We know it's a lot to fit in to our limited caravan area.  But that's the fun of it-making it happen in what might be the world's tiniest museum space!  We're sisters who are both museum professionals (heck, one of us is even the director of a museum right now!) so we're ready to take on the challenge.  Love Halloween?  Love history?  Then help us make it happen! 

We need these funds to purchase the most important part of our museum-the caravan itself!  Once we've got that, the sky is the limit!

Risks and challenges

We know it sounds a little crazy and it is a daunting challenge-to make a coherent and interesting museum in such a little space-smaller than most people's bedrooms. But we love the idea and we are committed to scouring the world for the best objects we can find to make our Traveling Halloween Museum the best thing you've ever seen.
