We decided to check out Iron Island Museum after our friend added "seeing a ghost" to her "bucket list". We were given a brief tour of the museum by our guide "Greg" and then left to investigate the place on our own. Armed with our flashlights and ghost hunting paraphernalia we called out to Edgar and Tommy in hopes of... More

If you are interested in anything supernatural, you will want to check this place out. The museum and the artifacts in it are your average stuff you might find in a local history museum. The stories of the odd events and happenings here are what make this place worthy of a stop. We had an *interesting* encounter in the basement... More

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 went on a guided ghost tour of the Iron Island Museum & thought it was fun & interesting. Our guide led us through the entire building & told us about the history and paranormal activity throughout the museum. The museum was featured on Sci Fi's Ghost Hunters a couple years ago where a lot of activity was captured. Also,... 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
