The Auburn University Museum of Natural History is hosting an open house, “A Nightmare on Mell Street,” on Saturday, Oct. 31, from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. Inside the museum, visitors can explore more than two million carefully preserved dead specimens from around the world. Museum staff will be on hand, and representatives from the Alabama Natural Heritage Program will have live eastern indigo snakes as part of a demonstration that highlights an ongoing project to reintroduce the snake to the wild in south Alabama. The first 200 children to enter the museum will receive a Halloween goody bag. The Museum of Natural History is located in the Biodiversity Learning Center on the Auburn University campus between Rouse Life Sciences Building and M. White Smith Hall. Visitors can access the museum from Mell Street. For more information, contact Kay Stone at
