The San Benedetto Paranormal Museum was founded in 1998 as a part of Chuck's Chicken Shack. When Chuck retired and the Chicken Shack was converted to a tearoom, the Paranormal Museum became independent.
Today, it holds over 3,000 cursed and haunted objects. The museum is broken into three rooms. The Main Room is where you can find most of our artifacts. In the Fortune Telling Room, we house an extensive collection of artifacts from the American spiritualist movement as well as antique and vintage Tarot cards. The Gallery displays monthly exhibits of local paranormal-themed art.
The museum also holds regular workshops and lectures.
We are open Wednesday - Sunday from 10 AM to 6 PM.
Meet Our Team
Owner Maddie Kosloski was desperate for a photo that didn't make her look 10 pounds overweight, and ended up with a picture of her in a gas station holding an undersized burrito. This is her third year running the paranormal museum. Her main responsibility is feeding GD Cat.
Leo DeBlassi is assistant curator, tech specialist, website builder, photographer, and bottle washer at the San Benedetto Paranormal Museum. Most days, you'll find him working the cash register.
Our ghost-detecting Cat, GD, can usually be found snoozing on the haunted rocking chair or protecting his tip jar on the front counter. Watch him carefully, though. He may spot a ghost that you can't (but your camera might)!
