Serve your community – have fun, dress up, spook and entertain!
WHAT: Our Annual Haunted Museum, where our exhibits come to life with spooky spirits of the past. Meet roving seaghosts, wailing widows, and stranded sailors. Stop by tented stations to dissect an owl pellet, meet unusual animals in our Spook-Tacular Zoo, decorate crafts and masks, wrap your friend into a mummy, search for coins, and earn prizes! All ages welcome. We are a family-friendly destination.
WHEN: Sunday, October 20 and 27 from 1-4 pm - Bigger and Better this year!

WHERE: Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum
279 Main Street Cold Spring Harbor, NY 11724
POSITIONS: Must be at least 16 years old or younger. We will consider younger kids with a character reference.
- Actors/Actresses – Bring the Haunted Museum to life by taking on a ghostly character to interact with visitors, from wailing widows to stranded pirates to starving sailors. Dressing up and make-up is required (we're happy to supply the costume, but if you have historical-looking items of your own, including bonnets, walking canes, full skirts, shawls, spooky dress up, top hats, pirate outfits, etc., bring 'em!). Must arrive by 11:00 on the day of the event. You're right for this position if you can remain in character throughout the event, can work as part of a team, and can present a professional personality while acting (no chatting on your cell during the event, please). While we will match you with a given spooky personality, there is some leeway for improvising.
- Activity Assistants – Help run our many tabled activities! There are two kinds of assistants:
- Activity Table Assistants - Help oversee our many stations such as gross, sticky touching tables, dissecting owl pellets, mixing slime, making potions, bean bag tosses, looking for coins in the sand. You're right for this position if you're friendly, cheerful, and responsible for keeping a potentially messy-looking table neat. Must arrive by 12:00 at the latest on the day of the event. Costume not required (but is optional).
- Craft Table Assistants - Oversee craft tables such as decorating masks, making paper black cats and pumpkins, and making other fun Halloween crafts. You're fight for this position if you like being crafty, can explain instructions to kids of all ages, can keep supplies in order, and are friendly. Must arrive by 12:00 at the latest on the day of the event. Costume not required (but is optional).
