Pups & Pumpkins

Thursday, October 12, 3 – 8 pm

Join us for an evening of glassblowing, pet adoptions, and art activities! Muffinjaw Designs will be blowing glass pumpkins, and visitors are encouraged to watch the process. Visit some furry friends from the City of Mobile shelter, who will be on-site for guests to play with and possibly add to their family through adoption. frios will also be on-site with sweet treats (and no tricks). Guests can also explore our special haunted FOR CHILDREN exhibition and complete our scavenger hunt for a prize. Finally, our education staff will be assisting with a fun and spooky Halloween-themed activity.

Registration for creating a glass pumpkin is now closed.


  • Pumpkins are $55 a piece.
  • Bookings will be made in 15-minute slots. Once those are full, we will not be able to add any other times, so we recommend registering sooner rather than later.
  • Only one glass pumpkin can be made in a 15-minute slot. Therefore, if you have more than one member in your party and would like to make more than one pumpkin, you must book a slot for each person in your party who will be making a pumpkin.
  • Please arrive early for your appointment. Due to amount of participants, we will not be able to hold your time slot if you arrive after the start of your reservation.
  • After your piece is finished, it takes an hour for the glass to anneal and cool off enough to take home. We invite everyone to participate in the other spooky activities, watch others blow their glass pieces, and enjoy the museum for the rest of the event.
  • If you cannot stay to pick up your piece, please speak with one of the Museum team members during the event to arrange a later pick-up.
  • MMofA will not be able to provide refunds for cancellations prior to the event and/or for no-shows.
