Visitor Tips and News About Colusa Paranormal Museum
Excellent. I learned some astonishing information. I heard some quiet Chinese music although there was no music bring played in the museum. Very informative about the history of the area. A lot of research has gone into the information presented.[Joy, 07/28/2012]
We recall hearing a strange tinkling music in the middle of the woods on a Bigfoot hunt back in the 1970s (no joke). Paranormal investigators refer to it as "Fairy Music," don't they?
Built in 1877 for wealthy Chinese merchants, this haunted building has a cellar that leads to the Chinese tunnels that crossed the street to the Sacramento River. Tong wars, opium dens, prostitution and a murder of a Chinese man, wife and two children have been described by a psychic. If you ghost hunt, it's okay if you bring your own equipment.
The building sits on a prehistoric Indian burial ground, and the remains of a 30-year old woman and 10-year old Indian child were found last year during excavation of a 7-foot hole (documented in a short film). The museum contains a World War II Japanese general's sword that sometimes makes a blood dripping sound. A Native American rain stick drops seeds through it. The stories of events of ghost and paranormal anamolies can be heard, felt and shadow people seen without special equipment.
"It's what you don't see" is what is special about this real haunted Chinatown Building in a Old West town.[John, 09/04/2011]
