Lemp Haunted Neighborhood Walking Tour

26 reviews
All tours are given by actual paranormal investigators, with years of experience dealing with the darker side of reality. The Lemp Neighborhood is arguably the most haunted neighborhood in America! Also this is the only walking tour that allows you to go into an actual haunted building, The Lemp Brewery Bottle Works. <br><br>Tours depart on time. As a courtesy to our other guests, we will not delay the start of the tour. We suggest you arrive 15 minutes before start time.

Small museum packed with great examples of household, business, military and phone company equipment of all varieties and time periods. We were fortunate to be the only visitors when we arrived and Sharon (I think was her name) offered to give us an overview prior to turning us loose on our own. SOOOOOO glad we accepted since she enriched our visit greatly by relaying personal stories and information she had gleaned from myriad past visitors to the museum, including repairmen, switchboard operators, phone booth coin box collectors, and end users of the different kinds of phones. Very enjoyable and highly recommend you visit to support this all volunteer museum.

We checked this place out in a whim, and ended up loving it. The ladies who run it offered a guided tour (for free), and it absolutely made the difference. They have extensive exhibits with written explanations, but the ladies are all retired phone employees and very knowledgeable. They explained the history of phone, the mechanics of the earliest battery, old phone booths... everything you could ever want! Highly recommend!

We visited this place on Sunday. The parking lot is about 4 minutes walk from the museum. The admission fee is $5 for adults, and I believe there is a charge for kids over five years of age. They have a small gift shop too. The phones displayed in the museum are of various shape, size, functionality, and technology. A guide gave us a tour of the museum and revealed the mysteries behind how telephones worked. It was interesting to see how the phones evolved and how social-economic factors prevailed evolution. It was also interesting to see the different fibers/wires used for the telephone lines and equipment used by the telephone operators/mechanics. Currently, they have fused the two duplexes to create this museum, and it is pretty spacious than what it looks from outside. They are also planning to open the second floor in the future. My wife and I had to take turns to keep the kids out during the tour, and while the guide was providing a brief as the wooden floors made noise when they ran inside

We chose to go to the museum from its quick mention on Atlas Obscura and were very glad that we made the decision. It was a highlight of our few sightseeing days in St.Louis. We learned a lot about the history of the actual equipment and the industry in general. Our guide was Carol and she was one of the best docents that we have ever had in a museum, very knowlegeable, friendly and helpful. She is a volunteer, as are all of the staff members and a former Bell employee. The cost is minimal and there is also a small shop area filled with great inexpensive telephone memorabilia. The museum is clean, light and extrememly well organized. We cannot recommend a visit any more highly.
