Visit the Henry B. Plant Museum for a thrilling Halloween event. An Eerie Evening at the Tampa Bay Hotel
will be held on October 28, 2017
from 7:30-9:30 pm. See the Museum in moonlight as you’ve never seen it before and hear creepy tales from days long past. Learn about a haunting double suicide that took place in the Tampa Bay Hotel. Victorian mourning and funeral customs come to life as eerie entities roam the halls. Period lighting and candles set the stage for true stories of death, homesick soldiers, and poisons. Lantern light will flicker off the walls and throughout Plant Park as guided tours take visitors to the brink of a shadow world.
Visitors to An Eerie Evening at the Tampa Bay Hotel will enjoy light refreshments on the veranda, intimate guided tours through the halls and rooms of the Museum, and an opportunity to shop in the Museum Store. Don’t miss a photo opportunity in a vintage wheelchair, and look closely at historic photographs to spot any spirit visitors!
