Spooky season is almost here, so join the Virginia Beach History Museums (VBHM) for the return of a seasonal favorite, “Ghosts of Thoroughgood Past,” and take a paranormal tour of the historic Thoroughgood House by candlelight this October.

Keep an eye out for ghostly happenings in the gardens and house as costumed professional storytellers guide you through the night. Campfires and cider will also be available at the Thoroughgood House to warm your spirits during these hauntingly fun fall nights! Tours are appropriate for all ages.

Tours will run every 30 minutes from 6-9 p.m. Oct. 19-22 and 26-29. Tickets are $15 for adults and children 11+, $7 for children 3-10, free for children 2 and under, and can be purchased online in advance or at the door. Tours are presented in partnership with the Zeiders American Dream Theater.
