09/20 Discover the Asylum tour

Have you ever wanted to explore ALL of the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum?

Here is your opportunity.

This is a ticket for Monday 09/20

The Asylum will be closed to the general public on these dates to allow unrestricted access for this tour. Explore with the Asylum’s most seasoned and experienced tour guides. This tour includes all four floors of the main building plus a subsection, which was used for lobotomy and recovery, and the oldest section of the hospital built during the Civil War.

You will learn the history of the Asylum, paranormal experiences, and the methods of medical treatment utilized by the hospital throughout the years. This tour includes an exploration of the Main Building, the Medical Center, the Criminally Insane Unit and the Women’s Auxiliary building. This in-depth tour does require a fair amount of physical exertion. Participants must be able to walk long distances and climb several flights of stairs. Guests are urged to wear comfortable shoes, seasonable attire, and bring a water bottle.
