We have bunches of terrific events coming up at The Morbid Anatomy Museum! Below you will find a list of events taking place this week, as well as newly announced and cancelled events; you can see a list of all upcoming events here.

You also won't want to miss our annual Morbid Anatomy Day of the Dead/Dia de Los Muertos Party taking place on Friday, October 24th! Sponsored by Modelo Especial and Negra Modelo, it will feature a mini-lecture by Dr. Andrew Chesnut, author of Devoted to Death: Santa Muerte, The Skeleton Saint; Calavera Makeup by Jane Rose; music by DJ in Residence Friese Undine; an altar honoring late film director Luis Bunuel; and as always, an opportunity to strike a mortal blow to our Lady Death herself in piñata form! Tickets are $15 for members/$25 for the general public, and can be purchased here

Also, hope very much to see you at Gowanus Open Studios, next weekend, October 18th and 19th; As part of the festival, The Museum will be free and open to the public! More on that here.
