The Southern Museum will transform into a haunted insane asylum for the annual Halloween season event of frightful fun on Friday, October 19 from 6-10 pm and Saturday, October 20 from 5-10 pm. On those evenings, the dangerous former Kennesaw Insane Asylum director-turned-patient has broken free of his restraints and will preside over a night of terror for everyone who dares to visit. The event, sponsored by Geico, is recommended for ages 12 and up and will include strobe lights and effects. Admission is charged; tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.southernmuseum.org or at the door. Get additional details at southernmuseum.com or by calling 770-427-2117.
