See Museum Director Greg Newkirk on Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum Season Premiere!

We’re pleased to announce that an artifact from the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult is the basis for the lead story in the season premiere of Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum!

Last fall we put on a rare exhibition in our home base of Cincinnati, Ohio just for the Travel Channel crew, who, despite their hesitance to touch anything in the collection, did a great job capturing the museum.

On Thursday, February 9th at 10PM EST, tune into Travel Channel to see museum director Greg Newkirk on the Mysteries at the Museum season sixteen premiere titled “The Amityville Haunting”. In the episode, host Don Wildman investigates the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult’s “Amityville Plank”, an actual piece of wood from the most infamous haunted house in American History.

UPDATE: You can view the full segment below:

We couldn’t be more excited about being part of one of the best history-based, educational shows on television. We hope you’ll tune in to see the museum’s appearance, then be sure to check out our upcoming exhibition dates to see where you can hold and investigate the Amityville Plank for yourself.
