Haunted Whaleship

Friday, October 27, 2017
5:30 pm – 8 pm

A family-friendly Halloween event geared toward children 12 and under

Meet ghosts from New Bedford’s seafaring past and head out on a scavenger hunt while roaming the spooky galleries of the century-old Museum. The not-too-scary fun includes a costume parade, arts & crafts, and refreshments. Whale merchant Jonathan Bourne and his daughter, Emily, return from the great beyond on their Haunted Whaleship – the Lagoda. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Special thanks to the National Park Service and local historians Lucy Bly and Judy Roderiques.


FREE for kids under 12
