Event attendees are encouraged to dress in Halloween costumes. For the safety and enjoyment of all guests, please keep these guidelines in mind: Costumes should be child-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, or violent in nature. For the safety of all visitors, we ask that guests refrain from wearing masks or other items which obscure the face. Costumes should not contain sharp or pointed objects, or materials that may accidentally strike guests or exhibits. Costumes should not contain any elements which resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon. The California Academy of Sciences reserves the right to turn away any guest with a costume that we deem offensive or unsafe.
