What to Expect
Public investigation times are from 7 pm – 4 am
The doors will open 20 minutes before the investigation time. You will be given an informational tour that will begin about 7:15 pm and will last approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. We lock the doors once the tour starts, so if you are late you could miss the tour. After the tour you will have until the scheduled end time to investigate the building on your own. You may bring food and drink. We have a heated break area in the colder months. Dress accordingly, the building takes on the outside temperatures. You do not have to stay the duration of your investigation time. You may sign out at any time. You can go outside to smoke or retrieve things from your vehicles. We have a refrigerator and microwave you can use. Coffee is available for free throughout the evening.
We have a CASH ONLY gift shop that closes at 11 pm.
