Terror Behind the Walls, America’s largest haunted house, is called “perfect for Halloween” by The New York Times, named #1 in the nation by Forbes, and featured on NBC’s TODAY Show. Terror Behind the Walls takes place inside the massive, castle-like walls of Eastern State Penitentiary and is consistently ranked among the top haunted attractions in America.
Select nights, Sept. 22 through Nov. 11. All proceeds from Terror Behind the Walls benefit the preservation of Eastern State Penitentiary, a National Historic Landmark. Terror Behind the Walls does not affect operation of the historic site, which remains open for tours every day from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Did you know that a lot of your favorite Philly events are made possible by federal arts funding? There are more than ten ACCESS Admission locations in Philadelphia that are also National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and /or National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grantees. That means that these locations offer $2 admission to ACCESS Card holders AND that they receive federal funding that supports education, the arts, and humanities.
The NEA is an independent federal agency who gives funding and support to Americans through opportunities to participate in, cultivate, and develop art in all its forms. Without the NEA, many programs and activities that are essential to the fabric of the vibrant cultures alive in America will no longer be available. Along with NEA, the NEH is highly influential in the success and sustained progress of many of the Philadelphian institutions, programming, and education.
