"Paranormal Investigations and Programs in Museums and Historic Sites"
3 Week Online Class - $175
Do you want to know more about paranormal investigations and programs in museums and historic sites?
Have you been approached by a paranormal group to investigate your museum or historic site? Do you have concerns? Have you thought about developing your own ghost tour or program? Have you ever wondered what this is all about?
Increasingly museums and historic sites are approached by paranormal teams or investigators. Some museums say no while many others have started to allow access on a fee basis and some have partnered with local paranormal teams or have developed their own special ghost programs and tours to bring visitors in who have curiosity about this. If done right, it is a great way to increase revenue and to teach history and folklore in an exciting new way for your visitors.
In this short course you will learn about the paranormal and how teams and investigators conduct their investigations – both the theories and methods will be detailed with real life examples. We will review museum policies for outside groups, why museums have these policies, and how they should be applied to paranormal investigations. The pro's and con's of allowing this sort of access will be reviewed. At the end we will ask each participant to formulate their own draft policy / program / research plan for a museum or historic site.
The course is all done on your own time and schedule. Each Monday you will receive a link where you can download the readings for that week. Discussion and questions will all be done via email. The course is structured so you can fit this into your busy schedule.
Space is limited so register soon!
