Don’t miss the “Haunted Whale Ship” coming in for its third port-of-call at the Whaling Museum! Dress in costume, explore the century-old museum, and meet ghosts from New Bedford’s seafaring past. Spirits of Old Dartmouth and New Bedford will once again roam the museum galleries and greet visitors with tales of long ago. Re-enactors will also include museum docents, staff and high school apprentices with special apparitions to be announced.
As if emerging from stormy seas, the Lagoda will glow the ghostly colors of St. Elmo’s Fire as thunder rolls through the Bourne Building. Explore the dark corners of the Museum, board the haunted Lagoda, and encounter the ghosts of New Bedford’s past. This not-too-spooky event includes a costume contest, scavenger hunt, arts & crafts, refreshments, children’s stories, and more!
Children 12 and under (and their parents) are welcome! Children must be accompanied by an adult.
5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., Tickets: $5 per person
Proceeds benefit the Museum’s educational programming.
Tickets are available at the front desk, online at the Museum Store, or by calling the Museum at 508-997-0046, ext. 100
