Join paranormal investigator Dan Sturges, thanatologist Matilda Garrido, and neuroscientist Dr. Lee as they continue to dive deeper into observing the paranormal at work in the material world and the hallowed halls of the Merchant’s House! Dan will share some of his favorite (and spine-chilling) paranormal experiences with Dr. Lee and Matilda and take questions from the audience. Dr. Lee will offer a basic tutorial on how to build your own ghost-detecting machine at home.

In the Spirit of Science is an ongoing virtual program about ground-breaking paranormal research, that began in 2020, when the Museum closed due to COVID-19. Through unbiased observation and systematic experimentation, this research is building a better understanding of the strange and fascinating phenomena observed at the Merchant’s House.

The project is led by neuroscientist Dr. Lee and Dan Sturges, founder of Sturges Paranormal, who appears on the Travel Channel’s weekly series, Paranormal Caught on Camera. He has performed investigations at the Merchant’s House – and documented his spine-chilling findings – since 2007. Thanatologist Matilda Garrido joins Dan and Dr. Lee to discuss their research findings.

This is a virtual event.
