Visitor Tips and News About National Paranormal History Museum
Curator Vince was very nice. He was preparing for an overnight ghost hunt, but allowed me a solo tour nonetheless. Pretty neat little set-up. Funky oddities and definitely a weird/creepy feel while you're here! Appalachian Trail and KOA campground adjacent.[Frankspats.com, 02/13/2012]
I am the curator for the Paranormal History Museum and Haunted Cottage of Harpers Ferry. We are adding a new attraction soon: An Exhibition of the Supernatural. It will have a vampire mummy, a fiji mermaid, Roswell Alien and more.[Vincent Wilson, 08/13/2011]
