Spend a Night in the MSP
Do you have what it takes to face the dark history and possible interactions with ghosts in the Missouri State Penitentiary? Test your bravery by spending a night in the MSP. See the prison in a whole new light while you hunt for paranormal activity and ghosts.
Get your EMF readers and digital thermometers ready! Your excursion will begin with a brief introduction and safety instructions from our expert guides that then morphs into a paranormal investigation of the grounds! Explore the infamous gas chamber, death row, 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), the dungeon cells, the recently restored Centennial Cells, and other areas of the prison.
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.
*Housing Unit 4 will be undergoing preservation efforts. Due to construction, the building may have limited accessibility.
