Nauticus and Hampton Roads Naval Museum To Provide Spooktacular Halloween Fun

On Friday, October 22, from 6 to 9 p.m., Nauticus and the Hampton Roads Naval Museum will team up to present "Haunticus at Nauticus" & the Hunt for Dead October! Dress up in your Halloween best and bring the family for this spinetingling Halloween favorite.

This year's "Lost at Sea" theme will have participants walking the haunted decks of the Battleship Wisconsin on the lookout for a ghostly crew. Inside the museum, enjoy scien-terrific experiments (don't miss the exploding pumpkin!), go jellyfish cove fishing, explore Nauticus after hours and watch a creepy creature feature with a close encounter with a real creature! Crafts, games and of course, Halloween candy will round out the fun.

Also, stop by the Hampton Roads Naval Museum for a skeleton scavenger hunt, face painting and enter Davey Jones' Locker if you dare! The villainous creature has taken up residence in our Life at Sea room. Kids can enjoy making their own ghost ship, shell necklace, and much more!

Admission is $7 for kids (ages 3 and up), $5 adults, Nauticus adult members are free. Call (757) 664-1014 for more information.
