Will you meet our Ghosts?!!!

Over the annals of time, there have been rumours that the museum might be haunted! A recent article in the Totnes Times gave examples of paranormal experiences that people who had recently been to the Museum have felt, heard and seen...Are you brave enough to step over the threshold? If you are, then let us know about your experiences so we can let the paranormal groups investigate...



"Forsooth, I have been wandering this house for years and years, day and night, and have not noticed anything unusual!"

Ground Floor - The Passage, Reception and Bennet Rooms




People often get a feeling of seasickness or waves. This could be to do with the ships' mast around which the spiral staircase is built, or the fact of it being an inn for a good part of its history, in a town that traded primarily by river and sea routes.

The First Floor - The Forehall, Pharmacy & Nursery

The Forehall



The man in the Forehall is imposing and can be unpleasant - swear words come up some- times! Psychics feel a presence of fear around him, though not necessarily being scared themselves.

The Nursery



Cats push around people's legs, in the Nursery, Babbage Room and sometimes the Kitchen.

The 2nd Floor - The Mitchell & Babbage Rooms



Children are felt in the kitchen, or at the very top of the Museum in the Babbage Room. Occasionally there will be one in the Forehall.

Did you experience anything unusual on your visit to our Museum? let us know about your experiences here...
