I was really looking forward to experiencing the tour of The Village but they only have one tour per day right now and were completely booked all week. We did go and walk around some of the ground floor which was very eerie, including lots of pictures and stories on the walls. I’m hoping I can find a video tour on Utube, but at least we got to see it. It is 1/4 mile long amd I don’t know if all of it is restored. We entered at the west gate.

We did the Missing Spire Campus Tour and absolutely loved it. Our tour guide, Vanessa, was super funny and brought a lot of life into the old buildings! Her personal history with the Asylum made her very knowledgeable and she had lots of funny, personal stories to highlight the history of the campus.

Our group definitely enjoyed the tour and appreciated the knowledge our tour guide had. The twilight tour definitely gives an excellent twist to the experience. I was very disappointed about the fact that the tunnel was still closed when my vacation date finally hit. I would definitely recommend this tour (especially the twilight tour)

We signed up for the walking tour of the old Traverse City State Hospital knowing that it would be an informative and interesting tour, but we were delighted by the tour being lead by Vanessa, whose personal stories having grown up on and around the grounds gave us an even deeper appreciation for the history of the hospital. We are a mental health professional and a Traverse City native, and were both fully engaged in the entire tour. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in the history of psychiatry and mental health, as well as an interest in local history and architecture. If you’re lucky enough to have Vanessa as your tour guide, you are also guaranteed to laugh and maybe also get your heartrate up a bit with a few of her stories...

Had too see this famous place,which had been a State Mental Hospital up until 1989. Has new name,with male side turned into condos and shops,and female side assisted living,and apartments etc. Tour gave good history,with walk thru of one separate cottage,which has not been renovated for habitation. Very sad conditions in that cottage shows how terrible the place was,no matter how beautiful the buildings looked.
