  • Love visiting the museum so much I bought a membership. Whether on an afternoon visit or a ghost hunt there is always a new experience. The spirits are so amazing to interact with. So glad the owners ...  more »

  • Love that there's a story behind each artifact. For those that like the spooky stuff and for anyone with an open mind, this place is great. The general admission during the day was cool but the ghost hunt after hours was amazing. If you're planning to visit please keep an open mind and you will enjoy it. For your open safety please follow the directions of the employees. At least a handful of artifacts that you don't want following you home.
  • Great place, good scares and a lot of cool and eclectic creepy artifacts and dolls. Definitely do the sit challenge downstairs. Get the flash light so you can see and read everything, not the UV light, it's too dark. Costs about $40 for the whole experience. Nebraska gem, will for sure be back.
