Trick-or-Treat at the National Firearms Museum is back for this Halloween. It's free, it's safe, it's indoors, and it's fun.
Get a close-up look (under glass) at the special Vampire Hunter’s Colt pistol and the remarkably engraved Devil’s shotgun. They are just two of the new sights this year, part of a large all-new display right at the start of your Museum tour. Treat buckets for children will be located in various galleries throughout the Museum, with light refreshments in the foyer for adults. Costumes are welcome, but not necessary.
The Museum is free every day, and the Trick-or-Treat is no exception. Children (accompanied by an adult) and families are welcome from 3 to 6 p.m. on Halloween, this Sunday, Oct. 31, 2010. Come out and join the fun (and no, you don't have to be an NRA member!). We're easy to find just off Highway 50 near I-66 at 11250 Waples Mill Road in Fairfax, Virginia.
“The Trick-or-Treat is always a hit with kids and parents,” said Museum Director Jim Supica.
“The Museum will be decorated for Halloween and there will be plenty of treats For those who brought their kids by last year, we have a brand-new 2,000-square-foot gallery with some really spectacular exhibits.”
And if the little ones aren't too careful, they might just learn a few things.
“We have some truly remarkable pieces of American history here on display,” said Supica. “Add that to the treats, and the kids are sure to have a great time. ”
