Those looking to see with haunted objects in real life have few options, and even less now that places like the Warren Occult Museum are closed to the public. Either you head to New England, or you’re pretty much out of luck. Fortunately, the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult, the world’s only mobile museum filled with haunted objects, comes to you. Now, you can make sure it comes to your town in 2017.
Throughout 2016, the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult has visited dozens of cities around the country, setting up the roving display of paranormally-active artifacts in some of the largest pop-culture conventions, creepiest haunted locations, and fascinating historical buildings. Not only is the museum the world’s only traveling collection of haunted objects, it’s the only one where visitors can interact with these supernaturally-significant pieces. Guests are free to touch, hold, and even investigate most of the artifacts themselves, a unique opportunity that’s led to many skeptics becoming believers.
Nick Groff, creator of the hit Travel Channel series Ghost Adventures and current star of Destination America’s Paranormal Lockdown, has experienced the strange activity of the museum’s items first-hand on his cross-country tour.
“I’ve been amazed by the paranormal evidence we’ve gathered around these unique objects,” Groff said. “The evidence is so bizarre and weird that it always leaves me wanting to investigate more. If you have the chance, you must experience the full effect of the museum in person.”
Now, you can experience the museum yourself. The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult has started booking for the 2017 year, and is already slated for stops in Long Beach, CA, Liberty, MO, Sault Ste. Marie, MI, and Salem, MA with more announcements pending. Heck, the museum is even making a stop in the Bermuda Triangle. Cursed objects on a haunted cruise ship in the middle of the Devil’s Triangle? What could go wrong?
Those looking to bring the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult to their town are encouraged to touch base with the organizers of paranormal events, conferences, and haunted locations in their their area and request the museum’s attendance in 2017. Bookers can reach the museum directly at [email protected] or via the museum’s official website.
Of the hundreds in the collection, some of the most fascinating artifacts contained in the Traveling Museum include an idol with a habit of giving visitors some startling nightmares, a mirror that shows people their worst fears, a haunted doll with a heart-wrenching history, a Ouija planchette that mysteriously burst into flames, a cursed ritual sword, an actual piece of the infamous Amityville Horror house, and a strange carving responsible for visits from a terrifying entity.
Amy Bruni, Executive Producer of TLC’s Kindred Spirits, former Ghost Hunters star, and CEO of Strange Escapes, hosts the museum at many of her spooky events, and believes the hands-on aspect of the collection is a unique learning tool for those interested in the unexplained.
“The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal and Occult has proven to be quite the attraction at our Escapes,” Bruni says. “I do believe in the phenomena of objects with attachments or paranormal energy around them, and it’s nice for our guests to learn fact from fiction. Plus, they get to see and handle these things for themselves, and make up their own minds about whether there is something to the stories or not.”
The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult was founded and is curated by Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews, Cincinnati-based paranormal researchers with two decades of experience in the investigation of the strange and the unexplained. Most recently, the duo were seen on TLC’s Kindred Spirits, and are slated for an appearance on Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum in the spring.
