It’s back…and it’s battier than ever!

BatFest is always one of our favorite Museum holidays, but this year, we’re blowing it out of the bat cave. Chat with the experts who will dispel all the dark myths you’ve heard about bat behavior, meet our Big Brown Bat colony and watch them take flight every hour and sample some food pollinated by bats.

Witness the Cincinnati Grotto members scale 106 feet to the top of the Rotunda, always a crowd pleaser. Channel your inner Batgirl or Batman by creating a superhero mask for the costume parade, and test your IQ in Batty Brain – a twist on the classic game of Jeopardy. Don’t miss out on a day that even Dracula would be proud of! Check back soon for the complete schedule.



Activities in the Rotunda are free.
Admission to our Museums is free for Members or included with your All Museums Pass. Click the ticket URL below to purchase.
