A house says a lot about its owner, as evidenced by Galileo's collection of telescopes and Lincoln's drawer full of t-shirts that say "I hope I don't get assassinated one day." Take a peek inside the mind of an eccentric figure with this Groupon.

Since Sarah Winchester's death, many of the house's visitors have reported encounters with ghosts. The "Walk with the Spirits" tour takes guests through the mansion's darkened, maze-like corridors and stairways filled with haunted walk-through attractions, roaming scare performers, and nightmarish tales.
Winchester Mystery House
Winchester Mystery House is an imposing Victorian mansion built by Winchester Rifle heiress Sarah Winchester. The house's floor plan is a study in eccentricity, boasting details including twisting hallways, secret passages, and stairways that lead nowhere. According to legend Sarah Winchester built her profoundly odd home in an effort to ward off the spirits of those killed by her husband’s firearms. Sarah compulsively remodeled the house until her death in 1922, resulting in 160 rooms that remain in a state of Victorian splendor or arrested decay.
Today, visitors make their pilgrimage to the house to witness in person all its peculiar glory. The home is lovingly restored and now plays host to a number of fun, interesting and mystifying tours each day. In autumn ghost-seekers can visit during the chilling and Gothic Halloween Candlelight Tours. History buffs can explore rooms dedicated to period furniture, antique trinkets, and vintage firearms found in the home. An eclectic gift shop give guests the opportunity to purchase souvenirs while the Winchester Café, presented by Tony Caters, offers refreshing drinks and taste-tempting regional specialties.
