Strange & Unusual Spotlight:
Zak Bagans’ The Haunted Museum
Haunted Objects Museum
Owned by Popular Paranormal Investigator
If you’re even a passing casual fan of ghost hunting, then you’ve at least heard of Zak Bagans. Known as a pioneer in paranormal research, he is famous for his over the top personality, going after demons and dark entities, and forcing his fellow investigator, Aaron, into terrifying situations alone (poor Aaron).
In 2016, Zak Bagans opened Las Vegas’ very first haunted museum, featuring dolls, relics, furniture, toys, and other cursed objects. The building housing the museum was built in 1938, and supposedly had dark rituals performed in the basement. Claims say that there was already hostile energy in the building before the haunted objects began to be brought onto the premises.
Full bodied apparitions have been seen in the museum, including a black cloaked figure seen by Zak, tour guides, and patrons. Mysterious sounds can be heard, and a feeling of dread surrounds many of the artifacts. There is so much activity flowing throughout The Haunted Museum that guests must sign a waiver form before entering and children under the age of 16 are not permitted inside.
The Haunted Museum is located at 600 E. Charleston Blvd. in Las Vegas and is open every day except Tuesday. For more info, call (702) 444-0744 or thehauntedmuseum.com.
