Spend a Night with the MSP Staff
Want to spend a night investigating paranormal activity in a prison? This is the tour for you! Join our tour staff in areas of the facility that include Housing Units 1, 4*, and 3, the gas chamber, and the recently restored Centennial Cells for an overnight exploration of the grounds in search of the strange and unexplained!
The doors will open at 8:30 p.m. You will then be able to visit the Souvenir Shop to receive your complimentary shirt. We will have a brief introduction at 9:30 p.m. of our staff and some of the history of Missouri State Penitentiary before you join a large group (max. of 75 people) that is then divided into five smaller groups that then rotate through the housing units and gas chamber.
At 10 p.m. we begin the investigation and will rotate the groups each hour to another location ending at 3 a.m. We will close the evening with a recap of the night’s investigations, ending by 4 a.m.
Please note that the 5-hour duration includes a meet-and-greet and an after-investigation recap.
