Peterborough Museum not only has a fascinating history and many wonderful objects, but also has a reputation as Peterborough’s most haunted building.

Tickets for this event are strictly limited in numbers, 
for adults only and cost £35, which includes light refreshments.

The event starts at 8pm and will finish before 4am. As these are popular events we will be running a second night of ghost hunting on Friday, March 27, 2015.
