Since ancient times people have told tales of their experiences with spirits returning from the dead to haunt the places, people, and sometimes objects they left behind.
We have been lucky have to visited many of these places and to have talked with those who have had firsthand encounters with ghosts and spirits. The objects held by the museum have mostly been donated to us for safekeeping.
Alexander Maberry has been fascinated by oddities and strange things since he first read about the Cottingley Fairies when he was a child in the 1970s.
His passion quickly became an obsession and by 1981 aged just 9-years-old he had already amassed a considerable collection of weird and unusual objects that formed the humble beginnings of what is now the museum.
