    Seaport Spooktacular

    Independence Seaport Museum

    211 S. Columbus Blvd.
    Philadelphia, PA 19106
    • Saturday October 27th 2018, 1:00pm to 6:00pm
    Join us to celebrate Halloween and have a scary good time!

    Trick-or-treat among the nostalgic decks of Cruiser Olympia, one of our National Historic Landmark ships. Our MakerSpace will be fun of festive creations, where decorated laser-cut pumpkins and spooky charms on glow bracelets* will be made. Decorate pumpkin scrimshaw - it's sure to be bone-chilling. Visit the Mad Scientists' Lab and get your hands dirty in mysterious mud while digging up ghoulish surprisies. There's a lot to discover in the muck while learning about what the Delaware River is made up of.

    Ghost stories told on Schooner Diligence may give you the chills but cider and hot cocoa will be available to warm you up. A face painter will be ready to draw supernatural designs. Costumes are encouraged and prizes will be awarded to maritime-themed ones. It'll be spooky fun for all at this fang-tastic family event.

    *Glow bracelets are an additional $3. Available on the day of the event.
    The Museum's building is ADA compliant and wheelchair friendly however our two National Historic ships (included with admission) are not.
    $12 - $28
