Join us to learn the historic ghost stories of Raleigh past. Behind the history of Raleigh’s great statesmen and leaders lies a dark and troubled past. The Friends of the City of Raleigh Museum brings to life the stories of the Capital City’s tortured souls in Dark Raleigh - an "after hours" interactive walking tour. Why do you need ghosts when you have the real stories? Get ready for Halloween on this true death, true crime tour.  The tour is recommended for 16+ due to the mature/adult nature of the stories told.

Six tour times will be provided each night and will each last about an hour. Tours start every half hour beginning at 5:30pm and are rain or shine. The last tour each night (8pm) is member only and includes a reception after the tour where you can grab a drink and hang out with the actors! Become a member today: https://www.cityofraleighmuseum.org/become-a-member.html

Per current CDC recommendations: Masks are required at check-in and while waiting in the museum. Masks are encouraged, but not required when we go outside on the tour.
