Haunted Ghost Walk at Pickering Museum Village
The Haunted Ghost Walk is a guided walking tour of Pickering Museum Village, including stops at each building that’s reported to be haunted. Your tour guide will tell you the creepy stories of the spirits that continue to inhabit each site.
You’ll learn about the paranormal investigations that have taken place at some of the sites, and spooky tales of past hauntings. For example, a man’s voice once told a security guide of one house to “get out”, and a child once saw the ghost of a child peeking out from the curtains of a second story window.
I won’t give too much away. You’ll have to attend for the full experience. The Haunted Ghost Walk is fun for kids of all ages, and it’s a really entertaining date night for couples. Justin and I had a really enjoyable time and we’d love to return to this pioneer village for more events in the future.

The Haunted Ghost Walk is one hour long, and there are several tours throughout the evening. It runs on Saturday nights throughout the summer, and Thursday to Saturday nights in the fall.
