Annual Haunted Museum Festival at State Museum on October 21

Don’t miss the museum’s annual ghost story festival, Haunted Museum, which will take place on Saturday, October 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is a FREE event with lots of surprises!

The event features a “ghost trail” through the museum with prizes, crafts, and refreshments. At stops along the ghost trail there will be chilling ghost stories from Tennessee’s past, including the Bell Witch, the Cherokee spirit Spearfinger, John Murrell’s thumb, and many other scary tales.  

This year, Nashville’s co-founder, James Robertson, will be practicing medicine as it was in frontier times. 

The trail ends at the Haunted Storyteller’s Stage where professional storytellers from Explorastory will spin tales about Tennessee. The Explorastory storytellers shape their stories to promote social justice, family values, and citizenship while bringing history and tradition to life.

Children will receive prizes as they follow along the ghost trail. Those attending the Haunted Museum event are invited to wear costumes and enjoy complimentary refreshments. Be sure and join us for one the museum’s most popular events!
