Tour the spooky halls of the Missouri State Penitentiary and experience a fascinating part of Jefferson City’s history as you walk through the dungeon cells and other areas of the prison.
Hunt for Ghosts in Jefferson City’s Notorious Prison
Get your EMF meters and digital thermometers ready! On this guided tour, you’ll explore the spooky halls of the Missouri State Penitentiary on a chilling ghost hunt!
Our guides will provide you with basic insights into researching strange and unusual paranormal occurrences. Guests will then be given ample time to use their own “activity-finding” devices to make contact with our infamous inmates.
During the tour, you’ll be guided through Housing Unit 1 (Control Center), Housing Unit 4, built in 1868, dungeon cells, Housing Unit 3 (which contains death row cells) and the gas chamber.
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.
Please note that tour sizes are limited, if you see that a tour is sold out, you may contact our office for other Missouri State Penitentiary tours that may be available.
