North Carolina Museum of History
Raleigh, North Carolina
People believe all sorts of things can be haunted: Places… people… and, of course, objects. While we can’t state with certainty that the North Carolina Museum of History is, itself, haunted, we have to ask, “Is it possible that the unusual activity reported at this location is tied to one or more of its over 150,000 artifacts spanning more than six centuries?”
Science has yet to explain where “hauntings” come from, but with references such as Annabelle, the Dybbuk Box, and Robert the Doll, just to name a few, haunted objects have become the stuff of internet legend.
We look forward to exploring the effect of historical objects further as we look into explaining the experiences that the staff and volunteers of the museum have shared with us. If you’ve visited the museum and had an unusual experience of your own, we’d love to hear from you! Complete our under 10-minute survey to share information about your personal experience with us.
