Ranked second on the Travel Channel's list of the world's creepiest destinations, the Winchester Mystery House creaks open its doors for only four, cold, winter nights in February. With rain pounding the rooftops and the chilly, wintry winds howling outside, armed only with a souvenir flashlight, you'll explore the dark, maze-like recesses of the 160-room Victorian mansion built by Sarah Winchester, the widow of gun magnate William Winchester, who constructed the rambling property to house the many ghosts of his guns' shooting victims. Was the house built solely as a monument to the dead, or do the phantoms Sarah communed with in life -- or perhaps Sarah herself -- still lurk nightly in the mysterious corridors of the Winchester Mystery House? Find out on this popular 55-minute guided flashlight tour! The Winchester Café will be open, serving entrees, snacks and more, and the gift shop offers vintage toys, Western-themed items, jewelry and decorative glassware.
The tour runs 55 minutes, is led by a guide and includes a souvenir flashlight.
Food and drinks are not included, but may be purchased separately on site.
The mansion is not accessible by wheelchair, walker or stroller.
Children ages 5 and younger will be admitted without charge.
