Nautical Nightmares at Mystic Seaport Museum

  • Mystic Seaport Museum 75 Greenmanville Avenue Mystic, CT, 06355 United States (map)

Join us for an evening of haunted thrills with Nautical Nightmares: Madness on the Mystic River, inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft. In this frightening theatrical, Mystic is falling into chaos! You’ll join the alienists of Arkham to investigate a haunted whaleship and the madness that has descended through the town… if your sanity can survive the night!

Each performance of Nautical Nightmares is an approximately one hour tour that covers half a mile of uneven terrain including cobblestone, wood planking, grass, gravel, and stairs.
