KINGSTON, N.Y. (August 23, 2023) – Stories of sunken shipwrecks, maritime murders, and ghostly apparitions, await as we invite you to experience the history and hauntings of the Rondout Creek and beyond with the return of HAUNTED RONDOUT at the Hudson River Maritime Museum, October 5-31, 2023.
Come aboard if you dare and hear about the haunted happenings of the Rondout Creek and Hudson Valley. Take a stroll through the Hudson River Maritime Museum and meet our storyteller who is simply dying to share some ghostly tales with you. Then, board our spirit ship Solaris as our guides recount the creek's spine-chilling past, and introduce you to the ill-fated souls whose lives were lost in its treacherous waters or to the creatures lurking beneath its surface. Who knows what or who you may encounter along the way.
Haunted Rondout Tours will run at 6:00pm, 7:00pm & 8:00pm, on the following schedule: Thursday through Sunday, October 5th-October 15; Wednesday through Sunday, October 18-29, There will be additional nightly tours on Monday, October 30 & 31. Tours will leave promptly on the hour and last approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. Tickets are $40 per person and includes a complimentary donut and cider. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.hrmm.org/hauntedroundout.
Starting in the Hudson River Maritime Museum's galleries, you may encounter some restless souls of those who perished in local waters and who are simply dying to tell their tales. A spirit guide will lead you onto the solar-powered boat Solaris, complete with her own haunted crew, for a 40-minute tour to the mouth of the creek, where you may see the ghouls of the Rondout Lighthouse and look for poltergeists in the creek's barge graveyard.
