The Liberty Hall Museum is located on Kean’s Union campus and is a great place for students and the community alike to visit for a mix of education and entertainment. This fall, they are hosting many festive events for people to enjoy.

Some of their most popular fall festivities are their Ghost Tours. Here, attendees will go on a spooky tour where the staff members will share the paranormal activities that have happened at the museum. This is a candlelit, after hours tour of the house. Guests can even share their own personal, paranormal experiences.

The Ghost Tours will be offered on two dates: Oct. 23 and 30. There are two times available on each day, 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Guests with children are suggested to visit the tour at 7 p.m., however the event is not suggested for children under 10 years of age.
