After four years of bringing real haunted artifacts to curious crowds across the country, we’re ready to make history and we need your help to do it. Become a member of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult and support groundbreaking paranormal research while getting incredible perks in return!
Our goals have always been to bring artifacts of paranormal significance to people who may never have an opportunity to interact with them otherwise, preserve these artifacts for the purpose of research and education, and to push paranormal investigation into the future. We’d like to believe we’re reaching those goals, because regardless of which city we’re in, there’s one question that we’re asked at museum exhibitions more than any other: “how can I help the museum with its mission?”
Some have suggested we add a Paypal button to the website, launch a Kickstarter campaign, or install a donation box in the museum exhibits, but none of those options ever felt right to us. After two months of planning, we’ve implemented a great way for supporters of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult to help us continue educating and fascinating the public while getting something of value in return: the Museum Membership Program.
As of February 1, you can now become a member of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult, helping maintain and grow the museum’s collection, increase the amount of yearly exhibitions, and fund groundbreaking paranormal research experiments. Members won’t just be aiding the museum’s mission, they’ll be gaining access to exclusive live experiments, private artifact evidence files, and monthly shipments of physical goodies.
In addition to keeping the museum on the road, the Museum Membership Program will also support projects like a massive 3D scanning undertaking and the resulting artifact database, the creation of custom-built paranormal research equipment, and “The Initiative” – a field-changing experiment five years in the making.
Some of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult membership perks include:
- Twice-monthly live video chats and experiments with the artifacts
- Access to the museum evidence files (incl. pieces that will never be on display)
- Signed pre-release copies of our upcoming books
- Regular shipments of museum merchandise as it’s released
- 3D-Printed miniatures of museum artifacts each month
- The museum’s private Skype number for advice or closer looks at artifacts
- Private events in a haunted location, with all the museum artifacts, just for you.
One of the coolest membership levels, though, is the Magic of the Month Club, where museum founder Dana Matthews sends supporters hand-made packages tailored for that month’s specific theme. Whether for luck, love, prosperity, or protection, her favorite crystals, hand-crafted incense, and other magical goodies will arrive at members’ doorsteps each month with instructions.
Even Nick Groff, the creator and star of TLC’s hit series Paranormal Lockdown (and Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures), has encouraged support of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult, becoming one of the first to become a member.
“I’ve been amazed by the paranormal evidence we’ve gathered around these unique objects,” Groff said. “The evidence is so bizarre and weird that it always leaves me wanting to investigate more. If you have the chance, you must experience the full effect of the museum in person.”
2017 is shaping up to be our biggest year yet, and we hope you’ll become a member of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult and join us on our journey into the uncharted waters of the unexplained. We can’t wait to make history with you.
