Venture into the Paranormal in Las Vegas
Paranormal enthusiasts, welcome to Zak Bagans’ The Haunted Museum! Venture down creepy winding hallways and secret passages into more than 30 rooms that rival scenes from Hollywood horror films, setting the stage for frightening facts about each paranormal piece.
See artifacts like the Dybbuk Box, known as the world’s most haunted object. The vintage wine cabinet inspired the movie The Possession and is said to house a malicious spirit. Shortly following its arrival, holes mysteriously began to appear around the artifact. A Downtown Las Vegas marketing executive also witnessed a black-cloaked figure pass through the exhibit’s closed door during a private tour with Bagans.
Among the hundreds of terrifying possessions, you can even peek inside the VW death van in which Dr. Jack Kevorkian ended the suffering of terminally ill patients, and you can get a close-up look at the “Propofol chair” from Michael Jackson’s death room.
Perhaps most unsettling, see the original staircase from Indiana’s “Demon House,” notorious for powerful paranormal activity before being demolished in 2014. The wooden banister and creaky steps now stand in a dimly-lit corner, resting on a blanket of dirt from the location. Following its installation, a group of construction workers walked off the job and refused to come back.
“They had several terrifying encounters in that room,” said Bagans. “No one should underestimate the energy, good or evil, that can reside in a physical object even after its owner is no longer living, especially something that played a role in a traumatic event.”
For that reason, visitors are required to sign a waiver stating they understand the risks before entering. Additionally, children under the age of 16 are not permitted. Proof of age is required for all guests.

The 11,000-square foot property built in 1938 is located near South Las Vegas Boulevard and was originally owned by Cyril S. Wengert, a prominent businessman. Through the years, hostile spirits have been rumored to roam the halls terrorizing past occupants — family members who passed away there and whose energy remains. Long-time Las Vegans even claim dark rituals took place in the home’s basement during the 1970s.
