Into the Sanitarium Escape Room (Ages 8+)

Can you uncover the truth of the Westport Sanitarium? Rumors have spread of strange goings on inside the patient wing. Like the famed Nelly Bly, you are a reporter who has gone inside the sanitarium to investigate but find yourself locked inside the doctor's private office. Your group of up to ten people have one hour before the sanitarium staff return and begin your treatment.

Night at the Haunted Museum has returned! 

Our popular haunted house is back this year with spooky scenes and scary stories from Westport’s actual history. Take an immersive, guided tour through the Museum and become a part of the story of Westport’s two sanitariums. Opening in the 1890s both hospitals have been brought back by the vengeful spirit of a past administrator—can you escape and put these ghosts back to rest? 

Check in at our historic barn to enjoy some light refreshments and music before you enter the haunted house. Note that this event discusses spooky history in an interactive theatrical setting. While family-friendly please use discretion when including younger children, recommended for children 7+. Each tour lasts 30 minutes and will feature dark spaces.  

We recommend close-toed shoes but encourage costumes. Low steps are a part of our tour route. 

Online pre-registration $8 for members, $10 for non-members. Reservations are required - register online here. Tickets are nonrefundable. In the event you must cancel, we will consider your purchase a donation and will happily issue you a donation receipt. 

Please park your brooms across the street behind Town Hall or in the Avery lot.
