Now in its third year, the Michigan Maritime Museum hosts their Haunted Museum event, a part of South Haven’s Haven Harvest weekend. Each year, the Haunted Museum is themed and has a distinct scary storyline. This year’s backstory follows the years after WWII when the United States Government funneled millions of dollars into Project Castle, a military research and development study of new technologies such as chemical and nuclear warfare. Top secret test sites were set up all over the United States for various experimental projects including those on human subjects. While many of these projects pushed the US into the forefront of military dominance, others proved disastrous. Radioactive exposure, mutations, and adverse reactions to chemical testing are only a few of the failures the US Government attempted to contain. Despite their efforts, no one was prepared for the FALLOUT.
The event is scheduled 8pm-11pm (last entry at 11pm) Friday and Saturday, October 20th and 21st. Admission is $8 advanced, $10 at the door. Advanced tickets will be available online in early October. The event is not suitable for young children. All minors must be accompanied by an adult. Join the dead this Halloween season at the Michigan Maritime Museum…if you dare.
