Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult’s 2018 Exhibition Launches at Michigan Paracon
On August 24, the all-new Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult exhibition was officially debuted to the crowds at Michigan Paracon in Sault Ste. Marie. In no uncertain terms, the launch was an absolute hit, and we couldn’t be happier with how well-received the museum was. In fact, over the two days of the conference, the museum saw over a thousand visitors!
As one of the premiere paranormal events in the country, hosting dozens of the top investigators, celebrities, and authors involved in anomalous research, Michigan Paracon was the perfect place to debut the 2018 museum exhibition. Packed with countless new artifacts ranging from ancient idols to rare relics from history’s most incredible cases of the unexplained, the all-new Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult presented a complete overhaul of the collection’s look for this year’s display.
Interactive displays beckoned curious visitors into the museum’s tent, while hands-on demonstrations of antique parapsychology equipment wowed onlookers. As brave attendees gazed into the Well of Intentions (as featured on the Hinsdale House episodes of Haunt ME), even braver guests got a close look at the museum’s new “Volatile Artifacts” display, full of items too dangerous to handle. The museum was even fortunate enough to receive a new artifact donation during the event.
In addition to the new exhibition, museum founders Greg & Dana Newkirk also debuted their new lecture, titled Possessions: The Study of Haunted Objects, to a standing-room-only crowd. The new presentation, containing clips and evidence from some of their most incredible investigations, gave Michigan Paracon attendees a rare glimpse at the work it takes to research and care for supernaturally-significant artifacts such as The Idol of Nightmares and the Amityville Horror Plank.
