Visitor Tips and News About Seattle Museum of the Mysteries
Seattle's Museum of the Mysteries has moved for the third time this year, once again escaping its own mysterious demise. It's now in the Inscape arts building, along with favorite exhibits such as the Bigfoot foot casts and the Ghost Communication Box.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 11/28/2010]
The best thing about this place is the Ghost Communication Box. You ask a spirit a question then plug it in and this spooky electronic voice starts spewing out random phonetic sounds while you transcribe any words you can decipher. We asked the ghost of Kurt Cobain where to eat dinner and he recommended fettuccine alfredo. They also have a Theremin that you can play.[KentuckYeti, 10/17/2010]
The Seattle Museum of the Mysteries includes exhibits on the legends and lore of the Northwest, such as UFO history, Bigfoot, crop circles, haunted locations, northwest history and historical figures. It also includes a Paranormal Science library and cultural center, and an entertaining parapsychology self-testing center.
There are many programs that the paranormal group hosts, including ghost tours of Seattle. The lock-ins on Saturday night are an "ongoing paranormal investigation of the resident ghost, Peter Alexander Dunnovitch" which includes a ghost poker game.[grossi, 04/27/2008]
