Hammond Castle Museum is pleased to present the return of Candlelight and Spiritualism Tours in August and September. These two specialty tours honor Hammond’s own habit of working throughout the evening.

Candlelight Tours: Guides will escort visitors through the museum’s many rooms, placing an emphasis on the Hammonds themselves and the time that they spent in their castle home. Visit and immerse yourself in the lost era of quiet luxury and candlelight.

Spiritualism Tours: Delve into the history of the American Spiritualism Movement and the culture that formed around it, as well as the contributions of both Hammonds. Guides will discuss cultural phenomena such as spirit photography and séances as well as the more scientific aspects of the movement such as Hammond’s research in ESP.

Candlelight Tours run at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm. Spiritualism Tours begin at 9pm. These tours are offered on Thursday: August 4th & 18th and September 1st, 8th, 15th & 29th. On October 13th, 20th, and 27th we will offer Spiritualism Tours only at 7pm, 8pm, and 9pm. Tickets are $20 each.
