Haunted Bowers Museum

A Night at The Museum

First opened in 1936, the Bowers Museum has educated and enchanted people from all over with its exhibits on local and world history as well as preeminent presentations on culture and art from around the world.  After the lights are dimmed and the crowds disperse for the day, something else may inhabit the museum as well. For decades, many of the employees and some of the guests have told stories of paranormal encounters they have experienced at the museum. Could it be the spirits of the Bowers family keeping watch over their museum or perhaps a spectral attachment from some of the countless antiquities on display? Join Haunted Orange County’s historian and author Charles Spratley for an exclusive after-hours tour as you explore the spirits and legends of Bowers Museum.
