Paranormal Books & Curiosities and The Paranormal Museum are unique. They are different from most places. Both our space and our subject is personal and intimate. Because of that, we have made the decision to offer full and exclusive access to Paranormal Tower on a private appointment base for the immediate future. We offer several types of tours, all of them are guided. There is NO option that is not a guided tour. This is both for the safety of the museum and for the benefit of our patrons. The artifacts require context. It is just that simple. The experience is not complete without the information available through a guide. It’s just better. Also, it allows for an intimate and more detailed experience. Click here for a list of our tours

"Thank you Paranormal Books & Curiosities and Nicole for making our tour so wonderful. It was a great evening for my family. Anyone who really wants a one of a kind experience splurge and go with the private tour I cannot thank you enough for the memorable evening with a group ranging from 10 – 90 years old it will certainly be one for the books!!!!"


"Friends are still repeating things they heard and I didn’t hear on Friday night. Everything makes complete sense to me…I am so Thankful and Grateful for everything you said…I wasn’t going to come on the 11th because everything was answered for me…but a friend needs more comfort and she won’t come by herself, so we will return in January…If anyone is thinking about going, please don’t hesitate…It would be a Great Gift for someone who needs some comfort… especially this time of year…Many Thanks!"

December Attendee

"I attended the last seance at Paranormal Books and I am so glad I did…I received messages that night that only I would know and understand…and some things were mentioned to me by friends that attended with me that night, that I didn’t hear but “got it” the next day. I am Grateful, I can have a Peaceful Holiday this year… If you have the opportunity to purchase tickets and have a open mind to it…than DO IT. Even if messages don’t come to you personally…the messages to the other’s in the group will blow you away… "


"I attended the December seance at paranormal books and curiosities. This was my first seance ever and first event with this store. I was not sure what to expect. I believe in the paranormal and of those who have passed coming though but I also believe some people use it to make money. Once at the store I felt instantly At ease. Kathy welcomed everyone and the people sitting down already seemed very friendly. I started to speak with those around me and felt instantly part of the group even though I knew no one. Once the seance started Kathy made jokes and helped everyone understand what was going to happen. There was no hokey stuff just a group of people ready to welcome the other side. Kathy asked us All to join hands and visualize a white light. Once the seance got started Kathy started getting messages from loved ones that past. Some of us saw shadow figures of the loved ones waiting to talk to their living people in our circle. Many received messages from those that have passed on. I was not one of the ones to receive a message however spirit is created by energy and it felt good to be part of that energy to allow others to hear from someone. The entire time I felt safe and involved in the process. I will for sure be attending another seance in the near future. Thank you Kathy for making the event fun, lighthearted and informational."
