  • Fright at the Museum: Spider Stories
Trick or treat! Test your spidey-senses at The Beaney this Halloween as you explore the museum with Anansi, the famous web-slinging trickster of African folklore. Solve Anansi’s puzzles to unlock a very special exhibition and take part in your own sensational spider story!

Our Spider Stories museum trail is just £5 and will be available from Saturday 2 October until Sunday 7 November (Closed Mondays). Complete the trail successfully to be entered into our competition to win an Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet!

Get dressed up in your best spooky costume to enjoy free activities like our special Front Room exhibition (Closed Mondays) and Halloween themed games on our interactive BEAM! projector (weekends only).

Plus, join us on Saturday 30 October for our special spooky day, where we dim the lights for you to dress up, get your spook on and explore the museum in a whole new way!

Our Spider Stories trail has been created in partnership with Ethnic Minority Independent Council Canterbury.
