Great Lakes Naval Station's museum will host a haunted Halloween celebration at 1 p.m. Saturday. It's free and open to the public.

Children are encouraged to wear their favorite Halloween costume. The Great Lakes museum's mission is to select, collect, preserve and interpret the history of the Navy. There is a particular emphasis on Great Lakes being the Navy's boot camp. The museum is at base's main gate off Sheridan Road north of Route 137 near North Chicago. Parking is free.
