Your overnight ghost hunt at Sheffield’s Fire and Police Museum is an experience you will remember for many years.
The museum was a former Fire & Police Station which was built in 1900. There have been numerous reports of paranormal activity within this building, with many good and bad spirits residing in one place you never know who will come through.
Your ghost hunt at the Fire and Police Museum will see you exploring all areas of the building made available to us, where you will be able to experience glass divination, table tipping and a group human pendulum experiment. Plus, for those comfortable enough – Ouija boards will also be on hand for you to use – all to aid your communication with the dead. Also, you will have a whole host of the most up-to-date ghost hunting gadgets to use whilst you carry out your ghost hunt. Taking part in spirit call-outs and wait to see what happens in the silence that follows. Haunted Houses likes to work in small teams to give you the very best experience possible. For the very brave lone vigils (ghost hunting in a room all alone) are very popular and plenty of opportunities to do so will be given.
The museum is now home to many old fire engines and police memorabilia so it is no surprise with so many artifacts that some spirits may still be still attached to them.
The most famous spirit residing at this interesting haunted place, is that of a former prisoner called Cain. It has been known on ghost hunts that Cain usually enjoys communicating with the living, but he is known to have a more sinister side. On many occasions he has been known to throw the glass and break it during glass divination experiments. He is renowned for making his presence felt – especially to women! He makes it quite obvious he resents anyone daring to enter his cell. There are also the reports of a spirit which has quite an evil streak, who has been spotted lurking in recent years sending chills through the visitors and staff alike.
The building originally opened in the 1900’s as a purpose built fire station, and was one of the first in the country. At a later date a police station was added to the building including it’s own holding cells and work rooms.
During the World War the cellars of the building were used as air raid shelters. Today, the building is home to the National Emergency Services Museum and is open to the public.
