Halloween comes to Brick Store Museum

The Brick Store Museum recently premiered a rare and unique exhibition, “Haunted History: Halloween at the Museum.”

The exhibit will feature spooky stories from Kennebunk’s past; weird pieces from the museum’s collection; and even interactive elements for children and adults. This exhibition shows off the museum’s creative side.

Many of the featured items will not have been exhibited before, as they examples of eccentric and extraordinary pieces from years past. Ghostly figures, portraits with eyes that follow you, and eerie sounds will fill the halls as visitors explore the haunted side of history.

The museum also invites visitors to participate in an outdoor “ghost scavenger hunt,” in which there will be four ghosts hiding in the windows of the museum, each with their own story to tell. The mysteries of the Kennebunks will truly come alive.

Many of the stories featured in this exhibit will come alive during the museum’s annual All Souls’ Walk, which will occur on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Visitors are encouraged to see the exhibit early – it is only on view until Nov. 4.

The exhibition is supported by the Captain Lord Mansion and Weirs Motors.
