Why carve a pumpkin when you could scrimshaw a gourd? Join the South Street Seaport Museum to etching spooky designs into gourds aboard historic tall ship Wavertree, surrounded by sailors’ spirits of yore. Participate in family activity stations throughout the campus, a scavenger hunt, and other Halloween fun. Creative projects illuminate history and life at sea.

Visit a discovery room of maritime-themed art by the late Eric Carle, beloved creator of picture books for young children, at The South Street Seaport Museum. Huge immersive murals bring families into Carle’s book, A House for Hermit Crab, and the cargo-ship adventures of 10 Little Rubber Ducks. Activities include meeting a live hermit crab, driving ferries on a giant play-table, and learning about cargo ships through the eyes of a rubber duck—all while exploring Carle’s use of color and pattern.
