OSR has a long, documented history of paranormal activity and is a premiere location for all paranormal enthusiasts. The Ohio State Reformatory provides several ways to interact with the macabre history of the stunning limestone architecture of the former prison.
Most of our paranormal programs are conducted in the evening with the assistance of an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Ghost hunting books and merchandise are available through our museum store and online.
Public Ghost Hunts are public paranormal investigations of OSR on select Saturday nights from March-August and in late November/early December. Participants MUST be 18 years or older.
*Guests attending a Ghost Hunt MUST be 18 years old. Guests 18 and older MUST bring a valid photo ID. Guests who fail to provide photo ID or proof of age may be denied entry.
Groups and professional ghost hunters will enjoy the exclusivity of a private event. Participants MUST be 18 years or older.

Rules and regulations for public hunts apply to private hunts. No private paranormal investigations will be scheduled September - Mid-November. Further questions and inquiries can be addressed to Kathy Feketik via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
