Haunted Museum Vigil
For the first time, Muddy Water Tours has been invited to explore this museum. Assist them in finding out who is haunting this place, assist us if we can match our ghostly experiences to the staff's and more! They will attempt to use table tipping, the glass sliding technique, a scanner and bring in a medium to assist. Additionally, we will use dowsing rods and pendulums, repetitive sounds/music and other tools of the trade such as K2 meters, Ghost Radar, and digital recording tools.
Who can attend? Anyone over the age of 18 and not under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Price? $39.00 base fee but can be slightly more if it includes dinner or an extra hour.
IMPORTANT NOTE:It is important to understand that we are attempting to communicate with spirit people under white light on this tour at the various locations. Should anyone not feel comfortable with this concept, perhaps another tour choice would be more appropriate. This is an investigation into the spirit world to better understand and appreciate life after life. Additionally, family members and specific historical figures will not be contacted during these tours.
