Ntl. Museum of the Great Lakes to present “Boo on the Boat”

        The National Museum of the Great Lakes will continue their Halloween Boo on the Boat tradition by extending the event from one day to one week.        
        Beginning Saturday, Oct. 24 and concluding on Saturday, Oct. 31 the museum will encourage young “goblins and ghouls” to visit the museum in costume to trick-or-treat aboard two of Toledo’s most historic haunts, the Col. James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship and the Museum Tug Ohio.
        Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 12-5 p.m. Sunday. The National Museum of the Great Lakes is located at 1701 Front St., Toledo.
        Admission is $16 for adults and $12 for youths 6-17. Children 5 and under and GLHS/NMGL members get in free. Admission includes participation in trick-or-treating and admission to the museum and boats.
        “This year we are extending Boo on the Boat to better accommodate social distancing,” said Ellen Kennedy, the museum’s Director of Education and Visitor Experience. “Trick-or-treat goodies will be distributed using pre-portioned, sealed bags at stations to help youth explore Great Lakes history and the museum ships in a fun age-appropriate way.”
        This is the first year the museum will also include the Museum Tug Ohio in the event activities in order to expand its outside footprint. The museum has also put in place admission caps every hour to allow for proper physical distancing.
        Participants are strongly encouraged to pre-purchase tickets online to ensure their preferred admission time. Additionally, as part of the Teal Pumpkin Project, children with food allergies will have access to non-food treats.
