Haunting at Hogwarts

Halloween kicked off early this year with our very first “adult night” at Omaha Children’s Museum. Last Saturday they threw a Harry Potter themed bash aptly named “Haunting at Hogwarts.”

It was an incredibly fun event – they thought through every last detail and made the night truly magical! I have some photos below, but you should really check out this album to get a better feel for the night!

Owl Post for Haunting at Hogwarts at Omaha Children's Museum
After securing our tickets, Jeff and I both received mail via the “owl post” with the event details along with which house we were sorted into. I was deemed a Ravenclaw and Jeff a Slytherin – oddly enough, I think Omaha Children’s Museum was spot on with both of us ;)

Hogwart’s Finest

We went super low-maintenance on our costumes, but they did the job! Honestly, people watching was one of the best parts of the night! People were SO creative and I loved the array of great costumes.

Jeff went as Harry Potter himself: black pants, white button-down, grey sweater, burgundy tie, HP glasses, Hogwarts badge, and a lightening bolt scar lovingly drawn on his forehead using an eyebrow pencil ;)

I didn’t choose any character in particular, and went for a traditional Hogwarts student look: white blouse, black blazer, skater skirt, black tights, black booties, and a Hogwarts badge

Magical Moments

Our first stop upon arrival was the psychic. Jeff and I had been discussing the probability of Murnan Baby #3 while waiting in line, so when she asked us if we had any questions I just blurted out, “will we have any more kids?” Like Professor Trelawney herself, our spacey psychic gave us a long, convoluted answer that mostly involved us getting goats (get it, “kids?”). Needless to say, the odds of Baby #3 are unknown ;)

At this point, we met up with our friends Erin and Molly and headed upstairs to listen to the band and snap a few photos. You definitely don’t want to mess with the likes of us :)

Desserts at Adult Night at Omaha Children's Museum
Much like the Hogwarts banquet hall, Omaha Children’s Museum had quite the spread of tasty treats! I had (a few of) these cupcakes as I waited in line for the Butterbeer.

I was pretty pumped to snag my Butterbeer – it tasted a lot like the cream soda we drink here in the Muggle world ;)

Aside from eating my way through tables upon tables of food, another highlight were the owls on display from Fontenelle Forrest. I have to admit, they are super creepy when they stare at you, but Jeff was quite the natural.

We also attended a potions class, made our own wands, and did a horrible, horrible job at Harry Potter trivia, haha! I didn’t, however, attempt to make my way to the Ministry of Magic ;)

Haunting at Hogwarts was a really fun night and a great way to kick off Halloween! The Children’s Museum has been a family favorite for years, but now we have a whole new reason to love it! I can’t wait to see what they come up with next! Go like them on Facebook to make sure you don’t miss the next Adult Night at the Museum!
