Various times
5 and up
Included with museum admission

Spend a spooky Sunday at the Seaport throughout October, where guests explore ghoulish themes. Discover creatures that lurk beneath the Paddle Penn’s Landing Boat Basin at “River Invaders,” or listen to legends of “Mermaids and Monsters,” and more spooky surprises.

Included with museum admission.

Program times are 12 PM, 1 PM, 2 PM, and 3 PM.

The themes for the series are: 

1.10/2 – River Invaders:  What really lurks beneath the water in the Paddle Penn’s Landing Boat Basin?  Do you think it’s the Delaware River Monster?  Or maybe just some fish?  Join us during this lesson to learn about what actually lives in the basin and how the creatures got here!

2.10/9 – Mermaids and Monsters:  Are mermaids and krakens real or merely legend that have been created by people ages ago?  We don’t know about you, but we want to learn more!  Come visit ISM on October 9 and learn with us!

3.10/16 – Sea Level Rise:  Is sea level rise real?  If it is, do you think it will reach your house or, say, the William Penn statue on the top of City Hall in Philadelphia?  During this program, we explore all that and more.

4.10/23 – Ghost Ships:  Do you think ghost ships ever traveled along the Delaware River?  If so, where did they come from?  The North, the South, Europe?  Come explore with other seafarers during this program!
