Are you looking for shivers and spooky stories for Halloween this year?  If so, you might want to check out the Genesee Country Village in October.

The Genesee Country Village in Mumford, NY is the largest living history museum in New York but there are always new things happening there.

This October, get ready to be scared as vampires descend on the museum.  Costumed guides will be taking guests on 75 minute tours around the grounds to experience spine-tingling twists on historical accounts and spooky folklore, depicted in eight theatrical vignettes.

The fun happens on the weekend of October 17th-20th. This year, they will be including specialty tours on two evenings. On Thursday, October 17, there will be a tour for guests with mobility issues requiring extra time to move between buildings. Then on Friday, October 18, there will be an ASL-interpreted tour on the schedule, to allow more of the local community an opportunity to enjoy this uniquely seasonal event.  These tours, as with all Spirits tours, are by reservation only, and will fill quickly.

Tickets are $25 each or $23 for Museum members. Bargain hunters who pre-purchase tickets before October 1 will get a $2 per ticket discount for any Sunday, October 20 tour. Spirits Buffet Dinners are available each evening for $15 per person, plus cash bar. Because of the intense nature of the tours, infants and children under 10 years of age are not permitted.

Interested?  Reservations are required.  Times and availability can be found on the Museum’s website,
