Alot of great pieces of history of city of Buffalo and the neighborhood.Linda and Maggie do alot of work to improve the quality of neighborhood.And there some interesting paranormal activity that takes place in the former church/funeral home. Maggie was pretty informative giving the tour,I grew up in the neighborhood and she told stories Ive never heard.Im thinking about coming back as soon as can for an overnight tour.Would definitely recommended if your into history and or paranormal things.

My favorite place to visit! I love historical and haunted locations! Ive always been drawn to this building, something pulling me back there but Ive never known why until I talked to my aunt who informed me that my grandfather was laid out in the first room on the right back when it was a funeral home. He passed away when I was a little over a year old, but Ive always felt a strong connection with him. The Halloween tours are always fun, granted you cant see much cause all the lights are off but I go every year!

Really interesting museum with a lot of history regarding the area. The location is also haunted so its a cool place to check out and even consider doing a ghost hunt there. You can rent out the place for an overnight to ghost hunt as well. Worth a trip just to see and learn the history of the area and the building.

If youre into ghosts, ghost hunting and the paranormal, Iron Island Museum *MUST* be on your bucket list to visit. The museum was a former church and funeral home and purportedly haunted. Although a humble museum in Buffalo, NY, its world famous with visitors from all around the world. I presume its popular mainly because the building is haunted. The museum has photos of famous paranormal celebrities that have visited it. Although there are ghost hunts during the evening, I went in the afternoon just to visit and look at the museums artifacts. Marge was a very gracious host to us and showed us some very interesting artifacts and told us their stories. I found the tragic stories of Tommy and Richard, two children ghosts, quite sad. The hours of the museum are somewhat particular, but its definitely worth adjusting your travel to the museums schedule in my opinion, especially if youre seriously interested in ghosts and hauntings. The other paranormal spot not too far away from Iron Island Museum is the Rolling Hills Asylum in Bethany, NY. I highly recommend Iron Island Museum for those who are interested in ghost stories and ghost hunting.

Fun time. Ghosts and hauntings

Review №11

Came here with a LivingSocial deal. Im naturally a skeptic but the tour guides offered up some pretty convincing stories and evidence. Dont forget to check out all of the neighborhood artifacts too which was the original purpose of the museum. The ghost stuff is neat but unfortunately overshadows the original intent of the museum. No pun intended.What struck me was that I expected a bunch of nutjobs for lack of a better word but all of the tour guides were normal people. They said they moved their museum to this location years ago and they never thought about or were interested in the paranormal. They just wanted to run a museum about Lovejoy. Then they all started to independently have strange experiences and it opened a can of worms. Wild!Check out Iron Island. Even if youre a skeptic like me youre still supporting a group of nice people who are volunteering their time for a good cause.

Visited Iron Island Museum May 17th and had an exceptional good time. The ghostly tour is fun and there is more than enough things to keep your attention oocupied in their vast collection of neighbourhood artifacts and collections. Definately reccommend this for a fun evening. Marge was a great tour guide and everyone else we spoke with at the musuem were friendly and engaging. Haunted History Tours Port Colborne will definately be booking an overnight there soon!!!
