Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews' Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult

After two years of traveling the country and scaring, thrilling, and educating people about the reality of haunted objects, we’re super psyched to announce that we’ve finally given the world’s only Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult its own online home! Now, you can take a virtual visit to the spookiest collection of haunted objects from your computer!

For the last two decades, we’ve been chasing down cases of the supernatural and the occult, and as you can probably imagine, we’ve managed to put together a pretty good collection of strange artifacts from our adventures. Cursed voodoo idols, haunted dolls, prophetic mirrors, you name it, we’ve probably got it. But what do you do with a collection like that? Some people bury the objects, some burn them, others place them carefully under glass and leave them to languish on dusty shelves. Us? We decided to create the world’s first traveling paranormal museum and the only one where you can hold real haunted objects and test them for yourself.

Since late 2013,we’ve been touring the country with a trunk full of the weirdest items from our collection, presenting them to audiences in some of North America’s scariest haunted locations like Colorado’s infamous Stanley Hotel or Pennsylvania’s Pennhurst Asylum. We’ve watched museum visitors gasp in amazement, seen plenty flee in fear, and even witnessed more than a few of them break down into tears. In the process of presenting the museum we’ve solved mysteries, calmed restless spirits, and even captured some of the most incredible paranormal evidence we’ve ever witnessed.

In all that time, we’ve had the pleasure of meeting thousands of curious visitors, many of whom we were happy to convert from skeptics into believers, but still, the most common question we were asked was, “when are you bringing the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult to my town?” Despite appearing at loads of great events every month, we can’t be everywhere, and our mission to share haunted objects, cursed items, and other supernaturally-influenced artifacts with the general public needed to be more than one place at a time, so we got to work on an online museum. Now, we’re proud to announce that it’s gone live.

The official website of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult is a place where anyone anywhere can experience the haunted objects for themselves. Each piece is beautifully photographed, their backstories summarized, and soon, their evidence meticulously compiled for use in public research. We’ve even opened up the camera in our paranormal research lab for 24/7 access to haunted items as they sit under surveillance. The feed has only been live for less than a day, and already visitors are capturing strange phenomena from their laptops. There’s never been another feed like it.

While the online hub is no comparison to actually seeing the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult in person and actually seeing, holding, and investigating the artifacts yourself, we’re dedicated to continually growing the new website to be as close as possible to the personal experience, further expanding our goal to make real haunted objects accessible to the general public. We hope you love it as much as we do.
