40th Halloween Haunt Museum

This year for the 40th annual Halloween Haunt, Knott’s has opened a museum that pays tribute to the first 40 years of the world’s largest Halloween party! The museum is located on School Road in the building which used to be Mrs. Murphy’s Boarding House. It is open during every night of the event, in addition to regular park hours!

On Friday, August 31, a ribbon cutting was held for the new museum. In attendance were many Haunt creators and designers, along with many important people behind Knott’s Berry Farm and Knott’s Scary Farm!

The museum features many props, artwork, souvenirs, costumes, and décor from past Haunts! All are welcome to visit the museum, and I highly recommend it!

At the same time I realize that many of my readers do not reside near Knott’s Berry Farm and/or may not be able to visit the museum. I created a video with those of you in mind. This video features several photos that I took at the ribbon cutting and also photos that I took of several of the items on display inside the museum. Enjoy!

My highest praise to all those who have created, planned, designed, illustrated, built, decorated, scared, entertained, promoted, or contributed in any way toward Knott’s Scary Farm over the first 40 years! May there be many more!
