Explore the darker history of an iconic Norwalk landmark this Halloween. The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum has a variety of events and all proceeds benefit the Museum’s educational and cultural programs.
Ghostly Sightings Tours - Oct. 18-25, 12:00-4:00 p.m.
The tours will focus on the history of the house when it was a private residence, between 1868 and 1938. Visitors may encounter the ghost who is haunted by those memories and has been seen walking through the first and second floors of the Mansion, but only at Halloween.
Haunted Basement Tours - Friday, Oct. 25, 6:00-9:00 pm.
Tour the rarely seen dark, Civil War era underbelly of the building, which will be retrofitted to look like a spine-chilling maze with lighting, playacting and frightfully fun props. (Not recommended for children under 13 years old) The Tours are $20 per person. Limited tickets are available only through advance purchase by Thursday, October 24. Tickets can be purchased by phone, email or at the door during regular tour hours: Wednesday - Sunday, 12:00-4:00 p.m.
Please call 203-838-9799 ext. 4 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. Comfortable attire recommended. For safety reasons, no heels please.
Victorian Villains Halloween Costume Party - Saturday, Oct. 26, 7:00-11:00 p.m.
Guests are invited to dress up and enjoy a night filled with Victorian villains, dancing, prizes—and a very pleasurable fright. Light Dinner and Halloween treats catered by Outdoor Cookers Catering and Event Planning.
