Mystic, CT - Mystic Seaport will open its Halloween event, Sights & Frights, on Friday, October 19. The family-friendly production offers haunted Halloween fun for all ages.

Performance nights are October 19-20 and 26-27, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Visitors can walk the decorated grounds of the Museum’s 19th-century village to encounter spooky locations and activities. Storytellers will tell tales of maritime misfortune, the schooner L.A. Dunton will be converted into a haunted ship, roving characters will entertain or frighten, and tradespeople in the shops will be manufacturing items of a creepy nature.

Family activities include mask-making, face-painting, temporary tattoos, free horse-and-carriage rides, and live music of a slightly sinister nature from the Museum’s chantey staff. Children are encouraged to dress in costume and are invited to participate in a nightly parade at 7:30 p.m.

New this year is a hist pumpkin patch filled with elaborately carved jack-o-lanterns and a free planetarium show, “Whoo’s Up in the Night Sky?”

The experience is self-guided and all “scary” activities are located inside, permitting families with young children to avoid them.

Tickets are $13 ($12 for Museum members). Children three and under are admitted for free. Advance tickets are strongly recommended and can be purchased at or by calling 860.572.5322 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the event.

Sights & Frights is recommended for all ages. Not all portions of the production are wheelchair accessible. Visitors will be walking outdoors and are encouraged to dress appropriately.
