Sights & Frights
Fridays and Saturdays / October 18-19 and 25-26, 2013
6 - 9:30 p.m.
Visit Mystic Seaport for a haunted Halloween celebration that features fun for the entire family! Step back in time and wind your way through the Museum's 19th-century seafaring village while meeting characters along the way. Have your fortune told, listen as storytellers weave yarns of shipwrecks and ghostly pirates, and be entertained by musicians singing eerie tunes of long ago. Take part in a haunted walk-through experience and be sure not to run into the spirit of a ghostly sailor along the way. Kids, wear your Halloween costume and take part in the nightly parade -- you just may win "best costume" in our contest!
Sights & Frights features activities that are "family friendly," "mildly creepy" and "not for the faint of heart." All "scary" activities are indoors, so families with young children can avoid them en route to the family friendly events.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring a flashlight to assist you in finding your way.
Check back soon for 2013 ticket pricing and information.
"Sock" it to us and help keep those in need warm this season!
In conjunction with Sights & Frights, Mystic Seaport will be accepting donations of new or gently worn women's or children's socks that will be donated to the Women's Center of Southeastern Connecticut. The Women's Center provides services to families affected by domestic violence and sexual assault in New London and Norwich. Donations of shoes and athletic footwear are also welcomed to help provide warmth during the upcoming winter months for those in need. Over the past five years, the Museum has collected more than 1,000 pairs of socks. A collection box will be located in the Visitor Reception Center.
