About
The host of Travel Channel's #1 rated series Ghost Adventures is giving everyone a chance to experience the spine-chilling vibe of the spirit world. Reality star and author Zak Bagans has turned a historic downtown Las Vegas mansion into a mecca of the macabre - a haunted museum. The 11,000-square foot property built in 1938 is located near South Las Vegas Boulevard and was originally owned by Cyril S. Wengert, a prominent businessman. Through the years, hostile spirits have been rumored to roam the halls terrorizing past occupants, family members who passed away there whose energy remains. Long-time Las Vegans even claim dark rituals took place in the home's basement during the 1970's. Paranormal enthusiasts visiting Zak Bagans' The Haunted Museum will venture down creepy winding hallways and secret passages into more than 30 rooms that rival scenes from Hollywood horror films, setting the stage for frightening facts about each paranormal pieces.

    If you get the chance... Go
    Absolutely fascinating. There are so many things to look at you almost need to go through twice. The guides will answer any questions you have but I feel like you need a bit more time to see the items in the cases. His collection is impressive and they always let you decide which exhibits you feel comfortable seeing. Zak is probably very proud of his staff. They were all amazing

    A “Must-Stop” for any Ghost Adventures Fan!
    My time at the Haunted Museum was one I will certainly remember. I have had a lifelong fear of the paranormal, but have always been a fan of the Ghost Adventures Crew. I’ve seen every episode 3x through and my love for the show trumped my fear of the unknown, so I had to stop by while in town. I had never been to the museum but have heard many stories, so I took plenty of precautions beforehand to ensure that there would be no attachments following me out (Wore a pendant from the Vatican blessed by the pope, had a “voodoo protection bag” filled with crystals, evil eyes, a st. Christopher medal of travel, some Himalayan pink salt, and even lined my doorways with salt before leaving for Vegas). Safe to say, I covered all bases and expected to be a paranormal magnet the second I walked in. Despite my fear, I went in with confidence and had an absolute blast! We didn’t experience anything particularly “paranormal” on our tour, but within minutes of the tour beginning, I began to feel a tight pain in my lower back. This also happened to be the same side as where I was keeping my “voodoo bag”. The pain grew and spread across my lower back as the tour went on, and was exceptionally painful in some of the more demonic rooms (The Dibbux Box, The Devil’s Rocking Chair, and the Demon house). The pain ranged anywhere from a 4/10-8/10, and hurt so much so that I almost had to step out of certain rooms and was routinely grabbing my back/stretching towards the end of the tour. If I were to describe it, it was like someone had a hold of my lower back and was squeezing it tighter and tighter. Now by the time I had decided to visit the museum, I was 3 days into my vegas trip, had been walking, standing and moving around all 3 days, and had 0 back pain whatsoever. The pain could be attributed to the length of the tour or how I was standing/walking, but it seemed so out of place and specifically started on the side with my “voodoo bag”. I had asked one of the tour guides if this was a common feeling, and he explained that while back pain was common, it was usually more of a scratching/burning sensation. The tightness wasn’t new to them, but very uncommon. What made it even stranger was once I left the house, my back immediately felt better and the next day, the pain completely disappeared. I can’t definitively say this was paranormal, but it was very strange and can’t really be explained/justified to a certainty. Regardless, If you’re a fan of the show or even just a general historian, this place is like a playground of incredible pieces detailing the darker side of history. Overall, I loved my experience, enjoyed all of the amazing tour guides, and overcame my fear of the unknown!

    Absolutely fantastic
    This was a fantastic tour of the haunted museum, lots to see and lots of rooms and it’s a guided tour so they tell you everything, there’s videos by Zak in some rooms explaining the content which was great and insightful. We didn’t sadly upgrade to the RIP tour tickets but they got to see extra bits like the cellar etc, which I was jealous of. Some rooms have this weird energy out, like you can feel it in the air. The scariest bit for us was walking past all the clowns in the circus area! They are life size and pretty scary don’t look them in the eyes! Overall we loved this! Deffo recommend for haunted fans and serial killer fans

    Zac Bagans Museum Comes Through!!
    I had been to Zak's museum in 2017. I was with my girlfriend and she had never been. I booked the RIP experience to see the extra rooms and basement. They had changed some of the rooms and attractions but it was very cool. We did have an "experience or encounter " while in the room with the Dybbuk box. After waking through the room, we walked out with everyone then back in after asking a question about the donations in the room to leave some respect. On the way back out of the room I heard a guttural deep mean growl from behind the Dybbuk box enclosure. I asked the tour guide if there was supposed to be a growl. He stated there was a prayer playing in the background. I said I heard that but what I heard was distinctly something different and more angry (I hesitate to say demonic). My girlfriend said she heard something but couldn't define it. The tour overall was amazing. I will always wonder what made the sound in the Dybbuk box room.

    A Horror Must.
    Fabulous place if your into your horror memorabilia and history. It has the rocking chair from the Conjuring films, plus loads of other fantastic rooms and items. You are guided around, and told stories of everything you see , and if you want the premium package, you get to go down to the basement, which is off limits to other visitors, you also get a t shirt and a lanyard. You aren't aloud to take photos on the tour, but you can take photos in the lobby, while you are waiting.

    Outstanding
    Mine and my husband first time in las Vegas and I am a massive fan of Zak Bagan and the Crew, so we booked the haunted museum RIP expensive and it was outstanding from the start to the end. I would like to say a massive thank you to the staff they were amazing its good you get a story before hand and understand the risk of stuff in the museum. With the RIP you get to see extra rooms, well the basement scared me the most i felt stuff down there before you turn the corner it's so heavy, but also the rest of the rooms where good aswell. Highly recommend. I can't wait to go back and see it again. Gift shop is good aswell.

    Haunted museum worth the 🕑 and 💲
    Perfect balance of scary and interesting. Not too many jump out behind a curtain scares. So well put together, you forget youre in a house. Each corridor and wall filled with fascinating things makes the perfect haunted attraction. Worth the time and money!

    Can’t wait to return
    We drove over 2k miles so I could go to this museum on our annual trip we take every year. We chose the first time slot for our tour and had 13 people in our group. Our tour guide Rachel was amazing! The tour was as you would expect it to be. Fun, full of excitement, and uneasy moments and even some moments for being jump scared like I was on our tour. It was worth the drive out here and I will be back to take the flashlight tour at night! Thanks for a wonderful experience

    Absolutely brilliant
    This is definitely a must see if you are in Las Vegas. The tour guide was full of information during the 2.5 hour tour where we managed to see everything within the museum. If you are into spirits you will absolutely love this place. Fantastic!

I will preface this by saying that I was SO EXCITED to go to this, but my disappointment was greater.

Pros: there were a few neat artifacts. The house itself was really cool.

Cons: where do I even begin? This place films everyone on every tour, then uses their occasional medical emergencies like fainting (since you cannot sit, have water, or use the bathroom for over 2 hours and it is HOT and CROWDED in the rooms) as "evidence" of people being "affected" by the paranormal. You cannot opt out of being recorded, and the videos are shown while you wait for your tour. Keep in mind that this was February, so it was cool outside. I can't even imagine it in the summer.

Our group was 13 people plus the tour guide. Each time you go into a room, the door gets shut so you're packed in like sardines. Remember this is an old house so the rooms are quite small and there's no air movement. The tour guide gives an overview of a couple interesting things and then you move on. There's no time to look at anything or read any of the signage, but the rooms are so dark it would be hard to see anyway.

Most of the artifacts just seemed like someone went to random thrift stores and bought the weirdest crap they could find to fill this giant house. I was also disgusted by the long piece of wood on display that a serial killer used to sodomized his victims. That's not an artifact, that's just sick. Half the tour is just the guide talking about how much the artifacts cost. In hindsight, the house itself was way more interesting than anything in it.

The VIP package was not worth it at all. I was excited about the basement but you literally just go down some stairs and see a pretty empty, dark space. The people without a VIP pass just have to stand around and wait.

4 tickets was close to $400 so I found this way overpriced after seeing what a joke the whole experience is. I would definitely NOT recommend taking anyone who can't stand for at least 2.5 hours straight and/or who is claustrophobic or sensitive to smells and temperature. I brought my in-laws who are in their early 70s and they had a really difficult time. Had I known what this would be like, I would not have gone, let alone brought them. I felt so bad for them.

This should really be split up into probably 3 different tour experiences at an hour max each and the price should be WAY less. Knowing what I know now, I'd still feel ripped off if I'd paid half what I did for the VIP experience.

Our son is a fan of the show so we decided to take him here. We originally paid for the regular tour but we’re talked into the RIP upgrade when we got there by angry joe. Saying it was a must do because you see so much more. Well that’s not really true. The extras in the RIP was crawling through a pitch black “hallway”, going into a basement for about 2 minutes, walking into a room with dolls, and getting a free T-shirt. Definitely not worth the $79 per person. I’m not a skeptic and I do believe in ghosts, and while Zak has a neat collection of items in this museum, the tour came off as silly to us. Not letting you stay in rooms for long because the spirits might possess you, saying hi and bye to dolls so they don’t follow you home, watching videos of people fainting because it’s so scary or forces in the house made them. It just came off silly. I enjoyed seeing some of the items he has collected but this is not a scary tour. Not even in the slightest. The reviews posted everywhere about “the scariest place I’ve ever been” are nonsense. Overall, if you go enjoy the stuff zak has collected, take time to read the stories if they don’t rush you out of the rooms, but don’t expect to be scared or unsettled. And the RIP is definitely not worth the price, unless you think a T-shirt should cost $31.

Second time going to the tour. First time was two years ago. It honestly was much better two years ago. I would have given it 4 or 5 stars then. No angry Joe out front. No scares in the fun house.. They changed some of the rooms. They added a VIP ticket which really was everything from Two years ago you just have to pay an extra 33 dollars for it. Paid for the VIP tickets and didn't mind the extra money. After the tour I realized the only big difference was the basement access. All the other extras are walking into closets to see a couple extra items that you use to be able to do for free in the past. The poor people who didn't pay for VIP just have to wait around while everyone else is certain rooms. The tour guide was awful I just felt like he wanted to tell me how much money Zak paid for every item instead of focusing on its paranormal history. I'm sorry I can't remember our guides name (older gentleman with black pop bottle glasses.) He ruined it for me. The tour is so dependant on your guide. It almost seemed like they are having trouble getting people to work

This was my number one thing I wanted to do in LV and I was not disappointed. I have watched the TV show since it began and have seen probably every single episode twice LOL. The museum was awesome... well organized and packed full of interesting, weird, spooky, and haunted stuff. Lasted about 1.5 hours, but then you have to see the Camaro SS that belonged to David Koresh (Waco) and the Pontiac Hearse that Zak used in a previous special. Unfortunately we didn't get to see Zak that day but it was a Sunday and I wouldn't be there either on a Sunday if I owned it LOL. I will mention that we did the RIP tour which costs more, but we got to see much more than those that just purchased the standard admission.

The only issues we had with the tour involved the guides. Our first guide (her last day) spoke really fast and it was a little difficult to keep up. The other issue was it felt somewhat rushed. There is so much stuff in this museum, it would be nice if you had a little more time to read the placards on display and take everything in. There is much to see and it just felt rushed.

So to sum it up... don't cheap out and pay for the RIP tour. A previous reviewer mentions how they felt that the serial killer room "glorified" there acts. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are many historical artifacts, news articles and photos on display regarding a few well known serial killers but it is all done very tastefully and with respect. We saw nothing that led us to believe any glorification of the killers or there acts was happening.

This place is super cool and Zak and his staff have put a tremendous amount of work into making this a great place to visit in LV. We highly recommend checking out the ZB Haunted Museum!

My husband and I went to Zak’s haunted museum back in Feb. 2021. My husband has always been a skeptic but I’m a longtime fan of Ghost Adventures and deeply intrigued by all things paranormal. I really didn’t have high expectations as far as “feeling” something while there but that’s exactly what ended up happening. As soon as we got into the museum I began to feel a bit off balance/dizzy. Then when we were standing by the stairs to the basement my husband and I were blasted with cold air. I found out we were standing directly above the basement chambers where the pentagram was. At that exact moment my iwatch alerted me that my resting heart rate was high which it has NEVER done before. We then went into the basement (we did the RIP tour) and we felt a very dark energy down there. Our guide told us to not linger down there for too long as they have had people get physically affected down there. I said a protection prayer before we went down. Each room had its own energy to it and I felt physically/emotionally affected by a few of them. At one point my husband said he began to get a headache and just felt “off”. As soon as we walked out the door to leave the museum my husband got a bloody nose (staff warned us this could happen), and I felt extremely emotional. I nearly bursted out crying and it felt uncontrollable. I have no idea what affected me so much but it was overwhelming and I’ve never experienced anything like it in my life. Needless to say my husband now believes in the paranormal lol. That night I had a very hard time sleeping because I kept reliving some of the experiences there and couldn’t get certain images out of my mind. I made sure to pray for protection and all was well after that. I do caution that you take this museum and all its haunted items seriously. I definitely recommend going but to know the risks and some of the things you may experience while there/after leaving.

If you’re a ghost adventures fan, you must go! I recommend doing a bit of research about the items in the museum before going as this will add to the experience once you’re there!

We visited the museum on Labor Day, in the evening between the 6p-7p window. I had bought general admission tickets, after you check-in, you line up beside the building with other people waiting until the group got to a certain number of people, then they directed us into the main entrance area. The guide told us that we could take photos outside, but we weren't allowed to take any pics/video inside while on the tour. When you first enter the house, there's restrooms and a water fountain available. You travel with your group & a guide from room to room, and each room is filled with spooky decor and Zak's mysterious artifacts. The lighting, temperature, and the heaviness fluctuate within each of the rooms, some feeling a bit heavier than others. There is only 1 other place during the tour that they have a water fountain, however it is not evenly spaced within the tour itself and won't last you the remainder of the tour.

There were some people in our group that purchased the RIP all access tickets, they were allowed to go into a few more rooms/areas of the house that we didn't go into, however we didn't feel left out at all with the viewing/tour that we had gotten. Fortunately, the last stop of the tour is the gift shop, where they have a gloriously huge area that has bottled water...ready for purchase, as you will most definitely need it to quench your soul.

Do this if you're a fan of the paranormal, supernatural, and enigmas of the world, a deep-dive into Zak's acquisitions of artifacts, etc. Our tour ended a little bit after 9pm, and they do have a parking lot where you can park for free. Note to fellow travelers: do not be hungry or really thirsty while on this tour...as you will suffer the consequences of dehydration, and it is not pretty.

First of all please allow anywhere from 1-2 hours of wait time to even get into the house. Make friendly conversation with the other visitors, they are just as excited as you are. You are not able to take any pictures past the lobby area. If possible, go into the house with an open and clear mind. The tour guides advise you to not touch anything, that would be a very good idea. The tour lasts about an hour and 45 minutes. Go slow and take your time to take everything. Next time I'm in Vegas, I'll be going back for sure

Lots of fun and very creepy! I would recommend upgrading to the RIP packages as you get to see a few extra creepy/haunted areas and you get a free t-shirt at the end of the tour. If you have seen his shows, you have seen small bits of some of the items in the museum, but on the tour you see so much more! The tour guides did a great job.
It is a guided tour and lasts about 1 hour and 20-30 mins, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and use the restroom at the beginning when they offer it.
If you have been fully immunized for COVID, bring your card or a photo of it and you do not have to wear a mask during the tour.

Long time ghost adventures junky here! I have been wanting to come for years. 2 of us were super excited, 1 was scared and the last one came involuntarily for FFF (forced family fun) so we had lots of personality in our group. I wanted to love it and these are the reasons I give it 3*

RIP pass is an extra $30 a person. If you buy this you can go into 5-6 rooms that the rest of us losers can’t. And the minute we checked in we were asked if we wanted to upgrade, our first guide picked out the 4 RIP’s in our group of 12 and only talked to them about all the extra cool stuff they would get to see and do that we wouldn’t. So the whole thing started off like WTF is happening here?! And then all through the tour the different surprise spots are announced and all the RIP’s can come forward and do this fun stuff while the rest of us just stand there. I felt like a kid in grade school being bullied because I didn’t have enough lunch money (even though I had already paid $50 a ticket). I agree with the previous reviewer that called this whole skeem gross. It screams greed and irritated us and took away from the overall experience.

I like the spooky and thought I wanted to be scared but the more we looked around and heard the history of some of the items and the history of the house itself we all agreed a solo walking tour with a headset (like Alcatraz) would be amazing. To be able to take the time to look at things instead of being ushered from room to room to watch videos. The museum has so much to offer but the gimmicky setup isn’t letting us find what really interests us. I get that then it would just be a boring museum and that’s not what the show is about.

We were there on a chilly night and some rooms were HOT and others just warm but then they close the doors and you stand in there for a good 5 min if not more. This is also the usher in and out and miss stuff because your group is leaving. You get hot, thirsty, feet and back hurting and you can feel dizzy and not right. I can see how people can mix that up with feeling spirits. The tour was 2.5 hours. Nothing but standing and walking!

The whole clown section was not needed and no one in our group loved that. We were headed into the 1800’s human head room and the guide was saying it’s so scary Zak doesn’t even like to go in there. So I’ve gotta know why Aaron, Billy and Jay always get assigned the creepier and crazier areas and you seen to dip out all the time 🤣
