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 doing 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 it’s 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 accident, including a teenager who in the 1800’s, lost his life when helping to shunt carts but who got trapped between the buffers.
There are many sad tales to tell, so no wonder strange activity is frequently reported by the people who work and volunteer at the museum.
Now our guests are adding to those experiences.
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, where 2 were shot dead
- The area that drops in temperature and feels decidedly unfriendly.
- Objects moving and phones that ring when not plugged in.
Think museums are boring?
Well, this one isn’t, so why not join us for a tour in this dark, eerie location.
Walk alongside the impressive trains and carriages, listen to the paranormal happenings and dark history of the location, whilst keeping a look out for for someone who is no-longer living!
The brave might venture to shine their torch into the carriages, only to possibly regret it later.
Others may just have enough dealing with the sound of the ballast dropping to the ground from areas of the buildings that are unoccupied!
The National Railway Museum is our most visual venue, but only when they want to of course!
I was part of the tour at the National Railway Museum. I was in the team that headed out with ash and we had a great time, we all enjoyed the tour and our experiences we encountered on the night. All of us in Ashe’s group would like to thank him for a great night would not hesitate to recommend the tour to all our friends and family. Looking forward to more tours with Adelaide’s Haunted Horizons.Karen Steer
