About The Event
Ever wondered what spirits lurk in the darkness at Leeds City Museum? Now you can find out, as Gatekeepers Paranormal invite you to join us for A Night At The Museum..
On the 16th May 2020, you can go on an after-hours ghost hunt at Leeds City Museum. Organised by Gatekeepers Paranormal., It’s a chance to see a different side of the historic building, as well as testing the limits of your beliefs.
Leeds City Museum was designed by renowned architect Cuthbert Brodrick and opened in 1868. It started life as the Leeds Mechanics Institute, a college with a library, study room, art gallery and the Albert Hall lecture theatre, and remained so until 1925 when it was taken over by the British Drama League and reopened as the Civic Theatre.
It was used by drama groups and as a theatre all the way up until 2005, when it was converted into Leeds City Museum. Over the years, there have been rumours of paranormal activity, with tales of ghostly footsteps and doors slamming shut when no one’s there, as well as sightings of an unknown figure standing on the balcony of the Albert Hall.
But its most intriguing story lies within one of Leeds City Museum’s exhibits. The Leeds Mummy, or Nesyamun, as he’s also known, was a high priest in the Temple of Amun in Luxor. He died over 3,000 years ago, but it’s said that his spirit is still here, because bare wet footprints have appeared coming from where his coffin is kept.
You’ll be able to uncover the truth of these rumours when Gatekeepers Paranormal Investigate from the ground floor right to the top of the 4th floor!
