Dead Men Do Tell Tales…

Brave souls have the chance to embark on a supernatural visit to the Shipwreck Treasure Museum, in Charlestown, this Halloween night (Thursday, 31st October) with the brand-new Dead Men Do Tell Tales ghost tour.

The adult-only tour will encompass the Shipwreck Treasure Museum and its 8,000 artefact collection and incorporate tales of shipwrecks, curses, superstitions and ghosts along the way.

It will be led by paranormal professional Nikki Grigg who has formerly carried out paranormal investigations at Shrieves House Barn in Stratford Upon Avon, considered one of the most haunted buildings in the UK.

Nikki, who has worked with many mediums, historians and paranormal artists in the past, believes the Shipwreck Treasure Museum’s rich heritage will make it a fascinating location to explore.

“I’m really excited to investigate the ghostly history of Charlestown and the Shipwreck Treasure Museum with the brave visitors joining me on the tour. I have walked through the collection of artefacts previously and now I’m eager to unlock their secrets,” said Nikki.

The Shipwreck Treasure Museum already has a reputation for ghostly apparitions with children claiming to have spotted shadowy figures and one local medium sensing a paranormal presence during a visit to the Cornish museum.

Ghost hunters will also have the chance to descend the tunnels beneath the museum and explore the dimly lit Edwardian era passageways of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Will you be brave enough to lead the way?

Tickets for Dead Men Do Tell Tales ghost tour cost £12.50 per person and must be booked in advance by calling 01726 69897 where payment can be taken over the phone. As this is the first time a ghost tour is taking place here it is anticipated tickets will sell quickly so book soon to avoid horrible disappointment.

Tours will take place on Thursday 31st October at 7pm, 9pm and 11pm with limited spaces available.

Although the tour is adult only 16+ year olds with a brave attitude and adult guardian will be permitted, speak to the staff at Shipwreck Treasure Museum for more information.
