Ghost Hunt at Leeds City Museum

Ghost Hunt at Leeds City Museum

Details

Join UK Ghost Nights at Leeds City Museum for a late night ghost hunt. Dating back to the 1800s this building is the current home of the Leeds Mummy  [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nesyamun]and museum staff have a few spooky tales to tell of the building.

HISTORY

The building dates back to the 1800s and was originally the home of the Leeds Mechanics Institute. Designed and built by the famous Leeds Architect Cuthbert Broderick and sits in the heart of Leeds City centre. This magnificent building has it’s very own Albert Hall which was used as a lecture theatre. The building has changed use over the years and was probably well known to most Leodians as the Civic Theatre up until 2008 when it was transformed in the Leeds City Museum. The museum has a fine selection of local artifacts and from around the world. With the most well known being the Leeds Mummy.

 GHOSTLY GOINGS ON AT LEEDS CITY MUSEUM

This magnificent building is steeped in history and it is not then surprising that there are spooky tales to be told. Staff and visitors to the building have reported hearing footsteps when the building is empty with doors opening and closing. A figure has been seen on the balcony of the Albert Hall and strange light anomalies have been observed by the naked eye. But perhaps the most intriguing story of all is the bare wet footprints that appeared without explanation close to the Leeds Mummy…………

Are you brave enough to join us or will you be running for your Mummy? Or will you last the night as we investigate the spooky happenings of Leeds City Museum?
