Tour #1 Are You Afraid of the Dark?" - Ghosts and the Gallows (Halloween Version)

This spine-chilling tour takes a completely different route from "The Original Haunted Walk". "Ghosts and the Gallows" recounts the murder of Thomas D'Arcy McGee, with a visit inside the old Carleton County Jail (now the Ottawa Jail Hostel), where Patrick Whelan was hanged for the murder. You will be guided in total darkness by lantern light through the haunted hallways of the old Jail, Death Row and the last working Gallows in Canada. Are you afraid of the dark? Come and discover for yourself...

A portion of each ticket sold goes towards the preservation of the Ottawa Jail. Our special Halloween tour will include new stories and details not heard on our regular tour, as well as treats, prizes, and other ghostly surprises! This tour is not for the faint of heart - it will be an unforgettable evening! "Ghosts and the Gallows" is not recommended for children under the age of 10.

You will hear of the many ghostly encounters that have taken place in the museum, as well it's rich history. Come and join us for this unique opportunity to spend an evening inside one of Ottawa’s most fascinating and haunted buildings!
