The Spookiest Museum In Texas Promises A Horrifying Time For The Whole Family This Halloween

Let’s talk about death, shall we? Not the most pleasant of topics to discuss, but there are a lot more nuances to the process of laying someone to rest than you might think. Different customs for different cultures and religions, cremation vs. burial, and preservation of the body are all things that must be considered when a person dies. Many aspects of funerals have evolved tremendously over the years, including hearses, mourning attire, and embalming techniques. All of this and anything else you may want to know about dying can be learned at the National Museum of Funeral History in Houston. Sounds like a perfect Halloween activity, doesn’t it?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The museum has special Halloween activities like a haunted house, car show, and Day of the Dead celebration taking place over the next few days. For more information on those festivities as well as general information about the museum, click here.

The museum’s address is 415 Barren Springs Drive, Houston, TX 77090-5918.
