For just $40 per person, you can experience the annual Ghost Walk tour in a new, enhanced way. Museum Director Bruce Whitmarsh and staff will lead you to meet this year’s historical figures and along the way we’ll share added stories and historic extras. At the tour’s conclusion we’ll have light refreshments, goodie bags, and a chance to talk with staff and mingle with the actors to find out more behind the scenes happenings!
Visitors on this tour will meet at Woodlawn Cemetery’s Walnut Street Gate. No bus means the 3/4-mile walking tour is wheelchair friendly!
