Learn to Hunt Ghosts in the MSP
Want to learn to hunt for ghosts and experience the paranormal? On this guided hunt, you will learn how to use ghost hunting equipment from paranormal guides, take great photographs and recognize paranormal activity, all within the historic and eerie Missouri State Penitentiary!
Our guides will provide you with basic insights into researching strange and unusual occurrences. You will then have ample time to use your own “ghost hunting” devices throughout Housing Unit 1 (Control Center and Women’s Unit), Housing Unit 4* (one of the oldest original buildings still standing on the property, built in 1868), dungeon cells, Housing Unit 3, death row, the gas chamber, and the recently restored Centennial Cells.
Please note that while we do have equipment available that can be checked out prior to your ghost hunt (a valid ID must be presented), we encourage guests to bring their own ghost hunting equipment and a flashlight for low visibility areas.
*Housing Unit 4 will be undergoing preservation efforts. Due to construction, the building may have limited accessibility.
