The Celts believed that on 31 October the boundary between this world and the otherworld became narrow, opening up and allowing the dead and supernatural creatures to cross over to this world.
31 October marks the final day of the museum's temporary exhibition “The People of Dragons and Birds – The Celts of Csepel Island”. Hence, from 17:00 a Celtic Halloween is organized at the Aquincum Museum.
