While the quaint 15-year-old Ayala Museum in Makati closed in June for renovations, that doesn’t mean it won’t be participating in Halloween events this year, as Ayala Museum On-The-Go hosts back-to-back events for your kids at separate venues — two within a hop’s reach, and one a long drive away —  this October.

Oct. 19 marks a Night Photography Workshop for Kids at Tokyo Camp Curry in Ayala Triangle Garden. Kids aged 8 to 12 will learn how to work a camera and take guided lessons on snapping pretty night shot photos around the 2-hectare urban park. Guided by Ayala Museum instructors, the night photography workshop will run at 5pm to 8pm on a Saturday.

Ticket prices start at PHP1,750 (US$33) for early bird registrations before Oct. 12. The event is also a one-day workshop.

Getting closer to Halloween, a kid-friendly version of Ayala Museum’s well-received Midnight Museum will be showing at the Clover Leaf Showroom (Oct. 26) in Ayala Malls Cloverleaf in Quezon City, and the Glorietta Showroom (Oct. 27) in Glorietta Mall, Makati City. Mystery Mansion, made for an audience of 6 to 10-year-olds, will get your kids just the right amount of scares as they enter a spook-house tricked with multiple doors and mysterious maze-like hallways. A walk in the park for adults who scare easy, too.

Tickets for the two-day event start at PHP850 (US$16) regular, and PHP550 (US$10) for groups of four people and more.

Ayala Museum is a 15-year-old art facility nestled at Makati’s Central Business district and lifestyle shopping centers. The four-story museum has housed mainstay exhibits like “Gold of Ancestors: Pre-Colonial Treasures in the Philippines”, a collection of archeological artefacts; “The Philippine Diorama Experience”, which narrates milestones in Philippine history through 60 handcrafted dioramas; and the Filipinas Heritage Library, housed on its top floors, which features a repository of materials in Philippine art, history, and culture.

The Museum closed in June this year for renovations and is set to re-open in 2020.

Temporarily closed due to renovations until 2020, but launching events in different venues under Ayala Museum On-The-Go
