Explore Cumberland on Halloween

Head up into the damp misty foothills of the Beaufort range and explore the streets and alleys of the historic Village of Cumberland this Halloween.

Head up into the damp misty foothills of the Beaufort range and explore the streets and alleys of the historic Village of Cumberland this Halloween.

Cumberland is a perfect destination for a fall afternoon walk with friends and family and the Cumberland Museum offers a self-guided walking tour brochure that tells the stories of the important historic buildings and landmarks of the village.

If you want to explore history and Halloween a little more deeply, then head into the “People’s Museum of Cumberland” for exhibits, thrills, chills, spooky stories, dark films, creepy crafts, and other Halloween fun.

German expressionist silent films will be on rotation in the Common Room and visitors are invited to brave the Haunted Coal Mine. Imagine yourself working deep underground where it’s dark as a dungeon — where the dangers are many and the pleasures are few!

The Haunted Coal Mine is open by donation (or regular admission to the museum) Oct. 29, 31 and Nov. 1 (Day of the Dead) from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m.

On Monday, kids and families can be part of a very special after-school Halloween Open House from 2 till 6. The after-school program will include a Passport to Creepy Cumberland, where you can head out into the village streets to explore very special places and people from Cumberland’s rich past.

Participants in this ‘haunted treasure hunt’ can win prizes at the Museum. Younger kids can participate in Halloween crafts, stories and so much more. All ages are welcome and all activities are by donation.

To find our more about the “People’s Museum of Cumberland” you can check out www.cumberlandmuseum.ca or join them on Facebook to find out about special events and cool stories from the small but mighty historic village.
