This was my second trip here. The first time an all night one was amazing. This was a very abbreviated tour with no time to explore on your own. But having said it was exactly as advertised. Great for the faint of heart or beginners.

Very interesting and unique. Worth the visit but not for small children. The tour guide was well informed and provided very good historical information. The art gallery of patient art is very interesting.

From the guides dressed in period nurses uniforms to the insightful museum, this is a stop worth adding to your schedule.

I was reading that the overnight tours are from 9 pm until 5 am. Are there any places to sleep or lie down during the time you are there? Not sure my older parents would make it through. I'd hate to pay for the family as a gift and they have to leave early.

unfortunately we aren't equipped for folks to sleep because it is against the fire codes here at the Asylum. We do have several hotels close by that work with us as far as rates and a late check out for the Ghost Hunters... More
