  • Don't miss this spectacular Museum. NOT your usual museum ! This historical home was once a beautiful Church, a funeral parlor & now a museum. We spent 2 hours there & didn't even scratch the surface ...  more »

  • If you're into ghosts, ghost hunting and the paranormal, Iron Island Museum *MUST* be on your bucket list to visit. The museum was a former church and funeral home and purportedly haunted. Although a humble museum in Buffalo, NY, it's world famous with visitors from all around the world. I presume it's popular mainly because the building is haunted. The museum has photos of famous paranormal celebrities that have visited it. Although there are ghost hunts during the evening, I went in the afternoon just to visit and look at the museum's artifacts. Marge was a very gracious host to us and showed us some very interesting artifacts and told us their stories. I found the tragic stories of Tommy and Richard, two children ghosts, quite sad. The hours of the museum are somewhat particular, but it's definitely worth adjusting your travel to the museum's schedule in my opinion, especially if you're seriously interested in ghosts and hauntings. The other paranormal spot not too far away from Iron Island Museum is the Rolling Hills Asylum in Bethany, NY. I highly recommend Iron Island Museum for those who are interested in ghost stories and ghost hunting.
  • It was awesome we have a family of eight and they all liked it and it was 5.00 a person little ones were free. Call for times some tours are 2 hours long
