Ghosts of the Mansion Tour

March - November

Push aside the cobwebs of haunted Philadelphia and step inside a historic Society Hill mansion for ghostly tales of mystery and intrigue! This special Ghost Tour begins outside, with visits to the Strangers Burial Ground and other haunted hotspots, and ends with an indoor tour of either the Powel House or the Physick House, colonial-era mansions in Society Hill. Both sites are reported to be haunted, with strange and unexplainable experiences occurring for over 70 years. The 75-90 minute tour includes the use of EMF meters (electromagnetic field meters) for the curious ghost hunter. Tickets go on sale soon!

 

Ghost Tour of the Haunted USS Olympia

October

Join us for a unique and memorable evening aboard the haunted battleship Olympia! From the time of the ship's commission in 1895, sailors said it was “hoodooed,” and over 100 years later, ghost hunters (such as Sci-Fi’s Ghost Hunters and the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures) are still drawn to her haunting legacy. Inside the hulking exterior, you’ll discover a beautiful, labyrinthine interior filled with reports of disappearing apparitions, ghostly voices, and other unexplained paranormal activity. The Ghost Tour will lead you through the creepy nooks and crannies of three decks, including the captain’s cabins, the galley, the sick bay, and the spot where the ship’s most famous ghost, “Gunner” Johnson, appears. Tickets go on sale in September.

December

Valentine's Ghost Tour: Love Never Dies™

February

Love is one of the classic ingredients of a good ghost story, and like ghosts and their many manifestations, love can take many forms, from romance and passion, to heartbreak and loss, to betrayal and revenge. Explore the hidden tales from Philly's lovelorn past, and discover haunting love stories and the ghosts they left behind! Tickets go on sale in January.
