Recurring Event Event Series: Science of the Seance (18+)

Science of the Seance (18+)

October 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Ectoplasm? Ouija boards? Houdini? Oh my!

What combines all of these things and more? The First Wave of Spiritualism! Noted scientist Alfred R. Wallace stated in his book Miracles and Modern Spiritualism that “there is enough proof to sustain spiritualism as there is to support any other science.” In “The Science of the Séance” event at Stuhr Museum, our team will put this statement by Wallace to the test.

Join us on October 22, 2022, as we lead our guests through an immersive, three-part educational experience on the topic of spiritualism. During this evening of entertainment, guests will gain insights into the history of spiritualism in America, watch a scripted performance of a late 19th-century inspired séance, and have the secrets of these famous performances unmasked for all eyes to see. Due to the subject matter, this event is respectfully an 18+ event.

Each session will last approximately 45 minutes – 1 hour. In order to provide the best experience, the number of tickets for each session is limited. Please plan to arrive at Stuhr Museum approximately 15 minutes prior to your session time, as the program will begin promptly at the start time listed on your ticket. 

Tickets are $15 for Stuhr Museum members and the public. Tickets are available to college students for $10 with a valid discount code entered at checkout. For questions, contact info@stuhrmuseum.org or call (308) 385-5316.
