Awesome time. Wonderful knowledgeable tour guide@! Short wait time for the tour so could check out the outside.
Visited TALA for the third time and had an AMAZING time. Our guides were Adam and Kyle. They were very informational, funny and made the experience one that will keep me coming back. I would suggest visiting here to anyone that is interested in the paranormal and the history of such an amazing building. Thank you both guys.
If you are in the area and interested in history, take a tour of the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. Fascinating history, including intertwined with Civil War. Tours can be pricey ($30 pp for 4 story tour) but worthwhile. Told that Charles Mason was here for a short while because his mother lived in the area and he wanted to visit here.... More
On Friday 05/08/15 my husband and I traveled to the TALA for a guided tour and drag queen show. Mike Duke was our tour guide and he did a great job. He was fun, knowledgeable and very informative. After the tour we attended the drag show, which was AWESOME! We had a blast! After the show we had to walk... More
I had the privilege of attending the drag show along with the condensed tour of TALA. Our tour guide, Mike Duke, was unbelievable. I have had a tour of the facility previously but Mike made this tour fun and interesting. His knowledge of the facility and the history was fascinating. It was a history lesson without realizing it, and I... More
Excellent tour giving by mike duke. very knowledge and made this trip a great experience The combo for the tour and the drag show is a wonderful idea....big bang for the buck, two in once for a low price. Can't wait to do this again and take the longer full tour of the asylum.
This was our second trip to TALA. We live 5hrs away and it is worth the drive! We did the historic tour Saturday afternoon 5/9/15 and our guide was Andrew. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We also did the ghost hunt in the main building Saturday night and our guide was Zach...he was amazing! We heard and experienced things... More

I could actually picture the building the way it was just by how mike described it. my... More
What an amazing building. My husband and I took our teenagers to tour the paranormal floors guided by Zack. He was a great guide. I would have liked to have had more time to look. It's an overwhelming feeling trying to see and read up on all the history and what actually took place there. We will be returning for... More
Really spooky experience, even midday. Gives you a sense of how broken our mental health policy was, even if the current state of affairs is untenable too. The prison ward and the medical facilities could give any sane person nightmares. The paranormal nonsense I could do without, but the stories on which the fake ghosts are based are true enough...
