A dark and unnatural force has taken hold of the museum. It all began with an artefact, an object connected to a centuries-old unsolved mystery. Strange noises, flickering lights, and vanished items soon followed. Then, one by one, staff began disappearing, leaving behind an abandoned exhibition and the telltale signs of a frenzied struggle.
This Halloween season, Billings Estate National Historic Site presents a chilling new interactive haunted experience. Are you brave enough to explore the museum at Park Hill after dark? Join the museum team in place of the mysteriously missing staff and prepare to confront the horrors head on – bring an end to the curse or risk the same uncertain fate as those who’ve tread these halls before you. Choose your path wisely – who knows what frights await around the next corner?
