  • The Whaley House is said to be the most haunted house in the U.S. The Museum offers a late night paranormal investigation tour every last weekend of the month, co-hosted by The San Diego Ghost Hunters
  • Don't smoke a doobie in the backyard after midnight!!!
  • I had a few instances of strange things happening here. My camera kept turning red in the view screen when I've never had that happen before. I also felt like someone pulled my hair in the courtroom.
  • So cool want to come back when they do the evening tours. So much history for San Diego. A must along with the Cosmopolitan Hotel.
  • Docents love to chat and answer questions. Go when they first open and you will have the place to yourself!
  • Thought I saw a legit ghost until I realized it was just me in the reflection of the mirror.
  • Forget orbs. I saw a young brunette in the children's room.
  • We already knew it was haunted, but didn't know it used to be a granary, County Court House, San Diegos first commercial theater, a ballroom, a billiard hall, school, & a polling place! Cool stuff :)
  • As soon as you walk in you can feel the it the house or is it your mind just playing with you ;-)
  • Check out my pic! Definetly caught an orb in the master bedroom!
  • Love what you've done with the place! Not your ordinary museum.
  • Just like the History Channel, I highly recommend the SD Ghost Hunters tour. Very fun!
  • Fun place to walk around. Strange things kept happening while I was walking around. Felt like someone kept touching my hair, then afterwards the guide told us Mr. Whaley is known for that! Spooky!
  • Hey The Whaley House Museum, you should join Freebie! The benefits are amazing for both you and me.
  • Very enjoyable self-guided tour of a historical (and supposedly haunted) house. Knowledgable and friendly docents.
  • We came here for an evening tour. They rush thru and you barely get a chance to ask questions or take pictures. They have another tour trailing right behind you and should really space the tours out.
  • Great to visit at night with Gas Lamps lit
  • Awesome Historical Place.
  • Good time to go in and see some ghost for Halloween..
  • Awesome tours!
