National Museum Cardiff Ghost Hunt is your personal invite to uncover and discover over a hundred years of history and investigate what paranormal evidence is held within the collection.
During our visit the DeadLive Wales team picked up on a number of areas that seemed to hold ghostly secrets. Although the building is over a hundred years old areas that were considered haunted by the team and the equipment used on the day were fairly modern.
After speaking to a member of the museum team about haunting, one staff member reported seeing another staff member who is alive, walking into an exhibition room. But a few minutes later meeting her on the staircase leading to the reception area. Could this be a ghost of the living?

With thousands of pieces of art and historical artefacts within the museum who knows what could be attached to them?
It has been said that every culture in human history as some form of belief in ghosts. And the possibility that the dead may return to the world of the Living. This cultural belief has given constant strength to ghost hunting. With many of our guests experiencing numerous examples of ghosts while sitting amongst the exhibitions in other museums. We feel National Museum Cardiff Ghost Hunt holds a large portion of objects originate from indigenous cultures which include North and South America, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Pacific across thousands of years.
From investigations in archaeology even prehistoric Europe had a beliefs in the afterlife. Bodies found at archaeology digs would find some bodies weighed down with stones and hearts pierced with stakes to prevent spirits from walking the land again. The classical culture of ancient Greece and Rome believe that the ghost of those who died by violence would return.
Could the National Museum Cardiff Ghost Hunt, uncover the paranormal secrets from who these objects once belonged?
