Spice up the long dark evenings by joining the Investigators of the Paranormal team on a spine-chilling ghost hunting night at Torquay Museum – on Friday 24th February. This is a lights-out investigation of a building with a lot of recent paranormal activity, and its own Ancient Egyptian mummy, so it isn’t an evening for the faint hearted.

During previous highly eventful paranormal evenings at the Museum, there have been photographs taken of apparitions, fingerprints were discovered on the inside of a mummy case which hadn’t been opened in years and a 300 year old crib rocked of its own accord. In October of last year, CCTV cameras caught leaflets and books inexplicably flying off the shelves in the Museum’s shop.

If you are fascinated by the paranormal, then now is your chance to explore the ghostly side of one of Torquay’s most iconic buildings, led by the highly experienced local group, Investigators of the Paranormal, who will use a wide range of techniques to communicate with the spirit world.

“We have had some fascinating results from recent paranormal experience evenings,” said Torquay Museum’s Carl Smith. “These have included an amazing photo of what appears to be a female ghost (photo attached), and then the discovery of fingerprints on the inside of the Museum’s mummy case which not only hadn’t been opened in more than eight years but couldn’t be opened without keys and at least six adults lifting the heavy glass cover off the case. ”

Ghost hunt participants at Torquay Museum can learn how the experts investigate the paranormal, get trained in ghost-hunting techniques, and hear about the supernatural encounters experienced by members of the Investigators of the Paranormal during some of the dozens of investigations they have conducted across Devon. Then they can explore the Museum in the dead of night and try to make contact with whatever walks its corridors after dark.

“Torquay Museum is housed in a beautiful Victorian building with a rich history, and has developed a reputation for paranormal activity,” said Chris Marshall of Investigators of the Paranormal team. “The Museum has played host to famous figures over the past 150 years, is home to Devon’s only human mummy, and has extensive collections of ancient and unusual objects from across the globe. This makes it a fascinating prospect to investigate, and during the time the Investigators of the Paranormal team have been leading ghost hunts at the Museum they have always produced something out of the ordinary to get the blood racing.”
