Our annual Toddlers’ Halloween Hunt is back! Join us for a day of family-friendly fun to get into the Halloween spirit.

Come dressed in your favourite costume and explore a 100,000-square-foot underground museum with your little ones. Search for stations throughout the bunker to find treats, crafts, and other fun activities. Keep an eye out for hidden Halloween surprises along the way!

You won’t want to miss this fa-boo-lous event!

Date: Wednesday, October 26, 2022 to Friday, October 28, 2022
Time: Entry time slots are every 30 minutes between 10:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The last entry time is 12:30 p.m., and the event ends at 1:00 p.m.
Price: $7 per person; Children 5 years old and under are free; Parking is always free.

Details: Upon arrival, you will receive information on the activities. Participate in pin the nose on the jack-o’-lantern, a dance party with colourful lights, and a paper bat craft. Children can also find staff members stationed at a few locations throughout the bunker to receive candy or small toys.

*To ensure safety of visitors, there is a limited capacity for each time slot, and activities are spread out across our 100,000-square-foot, four-storey facility. Staff at each activity station will be wearing masks, and treats will be provided using tongs. Learn more about how we’re keeping you safe.

*Please note that the multiple levels, stairs, and narrow hallways in the Diefenbunker make the museum difficult to navigate with a stroller. We recommend bringing a baby carrier instead, if this is a feasible option for you.

*The museum will remain open for general admission during this event.
