Not too much to offer here, a resale shop and people waiting to take your money for tours. I'm sure if you stayed the night something would happen. Got a bad vibe, felt like a potential rip off.

I'm a bit confused. Were you actually on one of our tours or were you visiting the building? The building is over 100 yrs. old and is undergoing some restoration. It is the most haunted building in Alton. It houses an antique store, a Photography studio, The Historic Museum of Torture Devices, Mineral Springs Haunted Tours, The Mineral Springs Paranormal...

have investigated here three times and had great evp and personal experiences each time. the location always seems to be in a state of renovation, which actually may be what keeps the spirit stirred up. and there's plenty of room to investigate, so if you have a large group, you can spread them out. the downside is that the location...

Thank you for your review. We agree that the ongoing destruction/construction may keep the spirits in a state of unrest (as it does us). We are always discovering new entities and much of our information comes from investigators like you. We hope you will visit again. More

The tour guide Wayne was great, really knew the history and interesting facts and rumors. We had never done anything like this before and we took our 17 year old daughter for her birthday. Like everyone says, lots of walking and it's uphill some too, and steps. Definitely not an accessible event. These are really nice people putting this on.... More

Thank you for your positive response. Many of our customers like you are skeptical and don't expect to see a ghost, but enjoy the entire experience. Fall tours are always large as many people only think of ghosts around Hallow'een. Some of our Winter, Spring and Summer tours are small and we have time to do more with ghost hunting... More

A couple of friends and I did the all nighter tour. It was well worth the time and money. Make sure to bring a voice recorder and evp recorder. Lots of activity here especially between 2 and 4am.

Attended the Mineral Springs ghost tour in March of 2014. My husband and I are completely blown away! There was so much interesting history we learned, and the pictures and evp's that were captured before our very eyes are astounding! I was touched twice, and he was followed around all evening by the "Jasmine Lady!" We will be back, and... More

A haunted tour of the hotel and a tarot card reading at the end that was VERY accurate. We enjoyed the hands on exploring of the known ghosts and the seance in the basement pool. The tour of the torture museum was interesting.

Got to Alton a week before scheduled tours began. Decided to check out some locations on our own. Stopped by the Mineral Springs to see if we could get inside. Met Janet at the Torture Device Museum and was told a small group had reserved the hotel for the night to investigate. We were able to hookup with them and... More
