National Railway Museum Ghost Tour

National Railway Museum Ghost Tour: The creepiest and, by far scariest, Ghost Tour in Port Adelaide!

Railway Museum Ghost Tour.  Why would the Railway Museum in Port Adelaide be haunted and why would we do ghost tours there? Could it be due to the history of the location, and in particular, the 21 deaths that occurred there?

Built in 1856, the Port Dock Railway Station in Port Adelaide, operated until 1981.

When it finally closed its doors, it made way for the present Police Headquarters and the National Railway Museum.

Although SAPOL now operate on where the ‘public part’ of the station once stood, the museum resides on what was once the ‘working part’.

Due to it being a working station for so many years, tragedies were bound to occur, and they did.

From murder to accidents, including a teenager who in the 1800s, tragically lost his life in a horrific accident, there are many sad tales to tell. No wonder strange activity is frequently reported by people who work and volunteer at the museum.

Now our guests are adding to those experiences on the Adelaide Haunted Horizons National Railway Museum Ghost Tour.

Is the National Railway Museum Haunted?

Why would a museum be haunted and what ghost stories would there be to tell?

Well how about these for starters:

  • A dark shadowy figure seen regularly at the Museum, often seemingly following the tours.
  • At least 21 reported deaths at the station and goods yard, including a 16yr old boy.
  • A locomotive that was involved in Australia’s first terrorism act
  • The area that drops in temperature and feels decidedly unfriendly.
  • Objects moving and phones that ring when not plugged in.
  • The brave have ventured to shine their torch into the carriages, only to regret it later.

Walk alongside the impressive trains and carriages, listen to the paranormal happenings and dark history of the location, whilst keeping a look out for someone who is no longer living!
