If nautical nonsense be something you wish…

The Tahoe Maritime Museum on Lake Tahoe’s West Shore gets into the spooky spirit this week. Pop your little ghouls and princesses to these varied family fun events:

Family movie night

Kick off the Halloween weekend with the Tahoe Maritime Museum’s first Family Movie Night on Thursday, Oct. 30 in Homewood. Festivities begin at 4 p.m. with model sailboat kits, a new scavenger hunt, face painting and a treat for every child. “Night at the Museum” begins at 5:30 p.m. Costumes are encouraged. The evening is free for kids under 12 years old and $5 for others.

Halloween weekend

The Tahoe Maritime Museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all Halloween weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Bring your ghosts and goblins for a fun filled family visit including coloring, activities and interactive exhibits for adults and children. Learn to tie a new knot, gain insights on local history and the role of boating in Tahoe. Incredible new exhibits feature historic photos from Jim Bell’s collection and magazine cover art from the early 1900s. One treat per child (as long as supplies last). Free for museum members and youth under 12 years old.

Nov. 2 is the first of Family Fundays every Sunday in November. Catch a youth-friendly movie at 2 p.m. in the Activities Area, do a hands-on craft, splash into coloring and more. Adults can test out the new self-guided tour packet.

The Tahoe Maritime Museum is located at 5205 West Lake Blvd. in Homewood (right next to the Homewood Ski Resort parking lot at the corner of 89 and Fawn St.) For more information, call the Museum at 525-9253 or visit tahoemaritime.org.
