Annual Ghost Story Festival Takes Place at Tennessee State Museum on October 24th
The Tennessee State Museum’s annual ghost story festival, Haunted Museum, is back for its ninth year and promises to be more entertaining than ever! The family oriented event takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 24.
Haunted Museum, which is free to the public, will feature a “ghost trail” through the museum with prizes, crafts, and refreshments. At stops along the ghost trail there will be chilling ghost stories from Tennessee’s past, including those of the Bell Witch and the Cherokee spirit, Spearfinger. The trail concludes at the tall tales stage where professional storytellers will relate stories about Tennessee.
Located at Fifth and Deaderick Streets in downtown Nashville, the museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday and is free to the public. On Saturdays, parking is free at state employee parking lots to the west of the State Capitol.
