OUR JAIL TOURS HAVE COME TO AN END. Join us on one of our other tours in Ottawa!

 Explore Ottawa’s famous haunted jail and real-life murder mystery! Tour the cellblocks where inmates of all kinds were once imprisoned. Retrace the final footsteps of the condemned as you walk from Death Row to the last working gallows in Canada. In 1869, was an innocent man executed for the murder of Thomas D’Arcy McGee, a popular Canadian politician? Does he still haunt the hallways of the jail to this day? Join us and find out for yourself. Not recommended for children under 10. Cette visite est également disponible en français.

A Safe & Spooky Experience for All...

Our Haunted Jail Tour regrettably isn’t accessible as there are a number of stairs along the route – unfortunately, they didn’t design 19th-century jails to be easy to get around!

More Spooky Fun!

We are down to our final few shows – don’t miss out! Join us at Ottawa’s Cumberland Heritage Village Museum for a spine-tingling paranormal adventure. In small, intimate groups of no more than 12, you’ll gain exclusive access to investigate four eerie heritage buildings, each brimming with ghostly tales and ominous history – in the dark! Feel the chill of the night and listen to the whispers of the past as we employ ancient and modern techniques to attempt to establish contact with the lingering spirits that may call the Village home. Will any of them answer? Leave skepticism at the door and step into the world of the unexplained. ‘Alone in the Dark’ offers an authentic experience where outcomes are as unpredictable as the spirits themselves. Nothing is hidden or staged. This unforgettably eerie evening will delight ghost story enthusiasts, fearless paranormal investigators, history aficionados, urban explorers, or anyone with a curiosity about the unknown. Book your spot now—spaces fill fast! All participants must be 16 or older. Choose curiosity over fear and join us in the dark!
