Ghost Tours Benefit Porter County Museum

By: Porter County Museum Last Updated: October 12, 2009

Midwest Haunted Excursions has pledged 20% of every ticket sold to the Porter County Museum in Valparaiso, Indiana.  The purpose of the Historical Society's Museum is to celebrate the history of Porter County. The Museum tells the story of local people and events by presenting interpretive displays of artifacts and primary sources.

“While helping a good cause this is the perfect adventure to get you in the spirit of Halloween.” Says Danielle Garrison one of the company’s tour guides.  “Even history buffs might learn something.”


The company specializes in local tours of Lake and Porter County’s factual history, urban legends, myths, and ghost stories.  All tours last three and a half hours with restroom and refreshment breaks.  Tour guides are experienced paranormal researchers. 

Tours begin at the striking Porter County Museum on 153 Franklin Street Valparaiso, IN 46383, and then move to the bus continuing its route throughout Porter County.

Patrons are encouraged to bring their cameras, and other ghost hunting equipment to use on the tour.  Children 16 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.  Tours are not appropriate for children under 8 years old.  Please dress for Northwest Indiana weather conditions as there will be a stop or two where you can get out of the bus to explore the location.  Private tours are available upon request.

The price is $25.00 per person; $5.00 dollars of every ticket is donated to the Porter County Museum.  Reservations are required and seating is limited. 

The Grand Opening of Midwest Haunted Excursions on Friday September 25th 2009 was a huge success.  Dozens of people braved the rain, and enjoyed the rich Indiana history and folklore.
