During the most haunting time of the year, dare to experience Things That Go Bump in the Night Ghost Tours on Friday and Saturday evenings: October 15, 22, 23, 29, and 30. Join an eerie lantern-lit tour of the shadowy museum grounds. Hear your guide recount the many mysteries and ghostly happenings that have occurred in the 19th-century historic village, as in the tale of a young ghost who roams the rooms of Bump Tavern or the mysterious early morning strikes on the anvil in the Blacksmith Shop. During each tour, be prepared to hold your breath as Michael Henrici brings one of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic tales to life. Tours run every half-hour from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
The event is inspired by Louis C. Jones’s classic collection of folk tales, Things That Go Bump in the Night, a timeless record of haunted history and restless spirits in New York State.
Ghost tours are held five nights only: October 15, 22, 23, 29, and 30. Tours last one hour, beginning at 5:30 p.m. and running every half-hour through 8:00 p.m. Cost: $15 members / $17 non-members. Reservations are required. Recommended for ages 10 and up as this tour may be too intense for small children. Younger children should take the earliest tour if possible. Groups will be smaller this season to accommodate for social distancing. Small groups of eight per tour or a single, larger family unit may reserve one of our limited time slots. If your family group numbers more than eight, please call (607) 547-1456 for booking guidance. Face masks are required. For general questions regarding the program, please call (607) 547-1456.
The tour moves over uneven ground in the dark. Visitors with potential mobility issues should call (607) 547-1456 or email [email protected] in advance to insure your visit is as safe and enjoyable as possible.
