The place is old and the smell inside can confirm that. Yet, the whole structure has been nicely preserved! On the other hand, you'll enjoy this place if you're fond of historical items or just getting your wits tested in the dark. Greg, our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. However, the ghost investigations (7pm - 3am) tour turned out to... More

We were at the Iron Island Museum last summer for an over night visit. The guide was informative and very nice. We had a great experience! My husband's iPhone picked up a young child's voice. The museum provides equipment to use. We are planning to make yearly visits! We took our older teenage Grandchildren with us. They have been asking... More

My freinds and I did an overnight at Iron Island museum. Our guide was great and gave us all different tools to use to detect activity. The volunteers are all very nice and easy to work with. They make you feel right at home on the overnight tour and even let us have pizza delivered when we took a break... More

I lived across the street from Wozniak's Funeral home for many years. As a matter of fact Ron Wozniak just passed away very recently. I can't speak for the rest of the museum but the paranormal aspect is a joke.

It is touching to see how hard the people at Iron Island Museum work to preserve the history of Lovejoy. The museum is definitely most known for its paranormal activity, and I can see why! Be it a day tour or an investigation at night; quality paranormal events are being captured on film and audio there. I highly recommend this... More
