Looking for a one-of-a-kind Christmas gift? Look no further than Heritage Village Museum's Spirits by Starlight Ghost Tour! We have added dates to the calendar: Dec. 29, Jan. 13, and Feb. 3.

The Village has the Tri-State's only year-round ghost tour and immersive investigative experience. Our expansive collection of pioneer buildings and artifacts voyaged from across the Ohio Valley to call Heritage Village home.

Paranormal historian Violet Shindler has swept the local community collecting and curating these stories in a documentary archive. For the first time in over a decade, we open our wrought-iron gates after hours, inviting the public on an excursion of paranormal proportions. As the moon grows full and the veil grows thin – you’ll venture through historic landmarks, learn their stories, and plunge into an active paranormal investigation.

This tour is for ages 18 and up. Admission is $35 per person. Museum members and students get a reduced rate of $25 per person. College students must show a valid student I.D.
