Scary fish, pumpkins and a night walk in store at diving museum

Have your say

There is plenty to do at the Diving Museum in Gosport over the Halloween weekend.

Children can come and help decorate the museum with cobwebs, scary fish, jellyfish and maybe carve a pumpkin from 11am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Entry to the museum costs £3 for adult, £2 for children (over 4) and seniors (over 60), and £8 for families (two adults and any number of their children).

Then visitors can go back in time on Saturday evening as the museum will be taking part in the International Museums at Night Festival.

People are invited to walk the battery by lamplight and learn about the heritage site.

The event takes place from 7pm to 9pm, with historical enactments by The Lee Players. It will be cold and damp with several stairs and uneven flooring, so come prepared.

While waiting your turn for the tour and after, you can enjoy refreshments, listen to the live folk band La Bastringue and look at the museum’s exhibits.

Please telephone (023) 9260 2260 to make a booking or pay at the door. Tickets cost £6. Tours start every 15 to 20 minutes.
