Things are getting spooky at the Fort Caspar Museum

Do you believe in ghosts? This weekend, October 28th and 29th you can take a Ghostly Adventure Tour at the Fort Caspar Museum. Tours last an hour long, include up to 10 people per tour and are led by the Casper Area Paranormal Seekers. Tours start at 7pm each night and go every 20 minutes after that until the last tour at 10:40pm. All proceeds from this event are split between the Fort Caspar Museum and the Casper Area Paranormal Seekers. 

According to the Fort Caspar Museum Fact Sheet, "Fort Caspar Museum was established in 1936 when Casper citizens reconstructed an 1865 military post located along the Oregon/California/Mormon Pioneer/Pony Express trail corridor through Wyoming. In 1967, the City of Casper provided funding for the first full-time staff at the site and, in 1982, built a new Museum building which included an exhibit gallery, collections storage, and office space. In addition to the Museum building and reconstructed fort, the Museum includes a reproduction Mormon ferry and Guinard bridge section, a carriage shed with open storage of the wagon collection, river trail, and memorial cemetery."

Staff at Fort Caspar Museum said to call to check availability of tickets left. They normally sell out every year. If you are looking for some haunted history this Halloween weekend, don't miss this tour at the Fort Caspar Museum.
