Lead by resident paranormal investigator and TAPS Family member, Vincent Carbone, guests have the opportunity to learn the basics of ghost hunting while possibly communicating with some of MJM’s former residents in a safe and casual setting.

This investigation is strictly for those 18 and over. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothing.

Investigations are usually three hours in length (8pm-11pm) and begin with a brief lecture describing paranormal theory, the history of ghost hunting, and a description of various paranormal encounters here at the Mansion.

Guests then transition into a full investigation of the house, including going into the period rooms while continuing the discussion of various paranormal topics. Refreshments are always included!

Our bi-monthly investigations open to the public are $35 or $30 Members/Students.

Private investigations are $50 per person, per hour with a two hour minimum. Suggested group size no more than 20 but can be as little as one person. 

When booking a private investigation, a $50 deposit must be made to secure the guest's desired date and time. A reservation for a private investigation can be cancelled up to 48 hours prior to the reservation. After 48 hours, the guest forfeits their $50 deposit but it can be applied to another investigation.

The investigation can begin shortly after the museum closes. 4pm Tuesday - Friday, 5pm Saturday - Sunday. Investigations must end by midnight.
