Museum of the Dead encourages visitors to interact with each other as they explore MAG and take part in the night’s activities. This event cannot safely go forward as the Museum of the Dead that the community has grown to love if certain precautions are not put into place to protect all attendees who fill the museum space on this night. To protect both event attendees and MAG staff, we will require proof of vaccination for all guests. We will advise on mask mandates based on guidance from the University of Rochester as the event gets closer.

Ticket sales end on Friday, October 29, at 12 pm. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door. Tickets include museum admission. Proof of identification is required upon arrival (21+ only). Doors close at 9:30 pm. No re-entry.
