Ghost Hunt at the Garden Museum

Over the centuries, many notable figures from history have visited the ancient church where the Garden Museum has made its home. There are rumours that some visitors never left, and their spirits still haunt our cobwebbed corridors. This autumn we’re looking for a team of young people to investigate the many ghostly goings on and spooky sightings which have been reported here.

Join our experts to explore the museum, discover its secrets and try to make contact with actual ghosts. Adventurers will use the latest ghost-detecting technology to investigate the hidden nooks and forgotten corners of the museum, including our iconic (and very haunted) 14th Century tower.

The hunt will be a fully interactive experience, with families working together to use augmented reality technology to search for ghosts around the museum.  All technology and training will be provided by us.

While this ghost hunt requires the sharp eyes and deduction skills of 8-13 year olds, all young people need to be accompanied by an adult.

Please note – the church tower is not an accessible space, but an alternative experience is available for those not able to climb it. All other areas of the tour are fully accessible.

Running time: approximately 45 minutes.
