Join the museum on October 23, 24, and 30 2020 for your spookiest tour of the Smiths Falls Heritage House yet… if you dare. Are you brave enough to wander through the rooms of the Heritage House in the dark? We’ll hand you a flashlight and you will tour through the rooms and corridors of our 1860’s home in the dark. With many hiding places and some very eerie sights, sounds, and characters, we’ll be sure to scare you into the haunting season.
Join us after your tour for some Halloween treats, cotton candy, and homemade apple cider to warm and calm the nerves.
Is the Haunted House Appropriate for all Ages? Parents and/or guardians must accompany their children (ages 12 and under) through the house and it is at their discretion if their children are ready for the experience.
What will I Experience While inside the Haunted House?We have actors that will be doing their best to help you forget the crazy world we are living in for a few moments and help you to enjoy the Halloween season. Some will be hidden up high, down low and sideways, while others will be front and centre to help make your hair stand up on end, to make you jump, hold onto your loved ones and most importantly laugh. Please note, this is not one of our ghost walks with storytelling of local lore.
Where Can I Park my Vehicle? We have a large parking lot to the side of the museum property and across the road at Lower Reach Park. You will be greeted in the parking lot by one of our guides who will direct you should you have any questions.
Are There Wait times? Usual wait times to get into the Haunted House are 5-10 minutes and are first-come, first served. There will be a designated line up area outside with social distancing in place. You are strongly encouraged to wear a mask while in the line outside for your safety. You may be asked to wait in your vehicle with a number in cue, if we hit our max capacity on the grounds. Thank you for your patience.
