Costume Contest

Tuning into our Halloween-themed online programs?

Be sure to wear a costume, then take a picture and tag @amnh on Twitter or Instagram for a chance to be featured next week! Kids, adults, and pets are welcome to participate. Costumes will be judged on originality, detail, creative use of materials, and (most importantly) theme—we want to see your best natural history-inspired costumes!

Submit a photo by Saturday, October 31, at 7 pm ET. The winner will receive four tickets to the Museum, including access to special exhibitions T. rex: The Ultimate Predator and The Nature of Color.

Follow the Museum on InstagramFacebook, and Twitter for daily posts about the natural world.
