Toddlers’ Halloween Hunt

October 25, 2023, 9:00 amOctober 27, 2023, 12:30 pm

Toddlers' Halloween Hunt guests dress as butterflies and search for candy in a bowl being held by Diefenbunker staff.

Our annual Toddlers’ Halloween Hunt is back! Bring your little ones for a day of fun to get them into the Halloween spirit. 

Come dressed in your favourite costume and explore hidden Halloween surprises in our 100,000-square-foot underground bunker that will be decked out for the occasion. Enjoy the fun atmosphere, decorations, and perfect photo ops as you search throughout the bunker to find treats, crafts, and other themed activities. 

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

Date: Wednesday, October 25 to Friday, October 27, 2023
Time: Reserve your tickets in advance, as there are designated time slots and limited spots available. Entry time slots are every 30 minutes between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. The event ends at 12:30 p.m. 
Cost: $12 per person; Children 5 years old and under are free. Parking is always free!

Details: Upon arrival, you will receive information on the activities. Decorate a take-home treat bag, get creative with a paper monster craft, try out a bean bag game, or groove to a dance party with colourful lights and Halloween music. Children can also find a few stations located throughout the bunker with small prizes and treats. All treats are nut-free. 


*To ensure the 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. 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, and there is no elevator available for public use. While there is an accessible stair lift, we recommend bringing a baby carrier instead of a stroller, if this is a feasible option for you. Learn more about accessibility. 

*The museum will be closed for general admission during this event and will re-open at 12:30 p.m.
