Tickets selling fast for Night Whispers

Limited space available for nighttime guided tours offered in October

Countless spirits are reported to still hang around town after dark. The Oshkosh Public Museum will be presenting some of these real Oshkosh ghost stories during Night Whispers, a nighttime guided walking tour through the Museum.

This year’s event will present new recorded real legendary stories and ghostly experiences. Are these stories true as claimed or just things going bump in the night? That is something visitors will have to decide for themselves.  

Guided tours are offered at 6:30 and 7:30 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from October 1-29. The cost is $15 per person, or $12 for Museum members. Tours are selling out quickly. Space is limited to only fifteen people per tour and pre-registration is required. Tours are not recommended for children. Purchase tickets online at oshkoshmuseum.org.  

Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each tour time and a cash bar serving soda, beer and wine will also be available for guest’s pre-tour pleasure, but take note that food and drinks are not allowed on the tour.
