Hidden away, on a secret shelf, rest the goodies set aside by the folks at the National Firearms Museum. Specially selected snacks and treats waiting to claimed by the anxious ghosties and goblins as their Halloween prize. The only question remaining is when you are bringing the little ones to claim them?
"We've been working towards this for a few weeks," said National Firearms Director (NFM) Jim Supica. "The decorations are up, we've picked out some great costumes, and it's going to be a lot of fun for the entire family."
Though the Museum opens at nine in the morning, the official trick-or-treating time doesn't start until three in the afternoon. Then it's three hours of fun, treats, and curator frivolity. So if you're looking to add a little education and history to your regular Halloween festivities, come on down to 11250 Waples Mill Drive in Fairfax, Virginia. And if you're lucky, maybe Supica will sneak you some snacks from that secret shelf.
