Paranormal Activity at Leeds Museum
Unexplained footsteps have been heard within the building with staff also reporting doors mysteriously opening and closing of their own accord. Others claim to have witnessed strange lights and a few have seen a shadowy figure lurking in the old Albert Hall balcony area. Haunted Evenings are naturally intrigued by these haunted claims and invite you to join us overnight at this City landmark to discover together, just how haunted this imposing building is.
History of Leeds City Museum
The foundation stone for this magnificent building, that is now home to the Leeds City Museum, was laid in 1865. Originally purpose built for use at the City Mechanics Institute, the building was for the working class men of the area to have access to early forms of technical education, funded by local Industrialists.
An imposing and rather Grand entrance led to the central “Albert” hall, intended for lectures (of up to 1500 candidates) with its seated balcony. The institute also had its own library, workshops, dining rooms, studios and classrooms.
After the Mechanics Institute relocated, the building became home to the Civic Centre, taking on a new role as a concert hall.
In 2008, after a costly renovation, the building is now open to the public as the Leeds City Museum, with the original “Albert Hall” now a grand central arena within the museum.

What to expect.....
Ghost Hunt Leeds Town Hall : What to expect on the Haunted Evenings Event?
This is a unique opportunity to visit areas of Leeds Town Hall rarely visited by members of the public including the old Victorian Cells and Crypt (Spooky as!!)
Your night at Leeds Town Hall will start with a warm welcome from the Haunted Evenings Team before we take you on a short orientation tour of some of the areas you’ll be investigating with the lights off!
During the course of the evening you will be split up into smaller groups to go off and do some group vigils in the dark (plus lone vigils for those of you brave enough to go it alone!). These will be organised by the team and a staff member will be present at all times with each group.
The Haunted Evenings team uses all the latest paranormal investigation equipment as listed on the equipment page and encourage all guests to have a go at using as much of the gadgets as they wish. The team aim to conduct unique experiments with a “think outside the box” attitude, making the night at the Bradford Police Museum unique to the location, with specific trigger objects and some special twists on more traditional methods for those braver guests!.
Haunted Evenings also aim to collect EVP evidence (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) using rare equipment which works at a lower frequency and can record voices unheard by the human ear. The team will also be setting up experiments in some of the rooms in the hope of catching paranormal activity which will be re-visited before the end of the evening.
