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.

The ghost tours are recommended for ages 10 and older as it may be too intense for small children.
