The history of the castle is incredible and unexpected, but the ghost tour is not worth the extra money. It seemed a bit contrived...
Tour cost of $7.00 includes a walk through of most of the building with a very knowledgeable guide/owner. Photos not allowed inside. While the history of the Pythians is interesting, along with the building's later use by the U.S. Army, I found the place to be spooky feeling and was glad to exit the building.

I've been to the castle 9 differs times! I love the history tour as well as the ghost tour. The owners give the tour and they are very knowledgeable. It is a must see! 40,000 sq ft of historical beauty!

had a lot of fun there. did the daytime haunted history tour. would love to do the night haunted tour or some of the other tours. lots of cool history. great place for outside pictures.
The ghost tours are AMAZING! Our guide Tim did a fantastic job with not only the "ghost" part of the tour (we saw lots of orbs!) but his knowledge of the history of the castle made it an awesome evening!
Wonderful tour with very capable and competent tour guide, (she owns the place) You will be surprised at the depth and breadth of information about this interesting landmark. RECOMMEND
The history of this "castle" is not that interesting. People who find paranormal activity here are desperate because there simply isn't the history for it. Can't look here, can't look there. "Tamara" is condescending and only looking to book large parties, fiercely protective of her "space". No pictures..?! What did I pay for?
