  • This place was so cool. The hauntings seemed really legit. They always have fun events.

This was our first ghost hunt and the employees were so excited and engaged, and were nice enough to let us use some of their dowsing rods. One of us even felt a ghost child hold her hand! For $10, the tour of all the museums is a steal and a must-do for any ghost hunters and/or history buffs.
