The Museum Of The Paranormal Is Actually Even Scarier Than You Think It Is, Here's Proof

Museums are houses of accumulated knowledge that help tell the story (or history) of specific subject matter. We all ventured into them as children, mostly on class field trips. I remember visiting the local museums of nature, history, science and technology, and of course the local art gallery. But I must have missed the day where we visited the Museum of the Paranormal. I have to say that is one trip I would have paid extra to go on.

This building is also fondly known as the "Archive of the Afterlife" for its macabre collection of some truly gruesome historic acquisitions, including "Old Sparky's" cap. That would be the headgear that was used as part of West Virginia State Penitentiary's electric chair. There is no telling how many souls passed on into the afterlife wearing that particular piece of leather and metal.

They also boast a rather impressive collection of damaged WW2 artifacts that were recovered from multiple battlefields across Europe.

The museum also has a large display of potentially haunted items that were donated from local paranormal investigations.

There is even a famous haunted painted hanging in their gallery; it is simply titled Annie. I can understand why it is believed to be haunted as just looking at a picture of it can cause shivers to roll down your spine.

The museum has become a popular tourist destination, with groups and families coming from all over to visit its haunted halls. Be warned that not everything in there is "safe" for little children to be interacting with, so please use caution.
