Haunted Museum finds new Nottingham city centre home after being forced to leave historic Mapperley building


The owners of the Haunted Museum have today announced they will be making the move into Nottingham city centre after being forced to leave their Mapperley home last month.

Museum owner Steve Wesson told Gedling Eye the old cinema that housed the museum on Woodborough Road was beyond repair and they were seeking a new home somewhere in the city.

Mr Wesson told Gedling Eye at the time: “The old Majestic Cinema has been a amazing building for us and is such a shame we now can’t carry on there for many years to come.”

But today there was good news with the attraction announcing on their Facebook page they will be making the move into the Hopkinsons antiques and arts building on Station Street.

The collection will now be housed alongside other oddities at the museum in the basement at the city centre venue.

In the post, Mr Wesson wrote: “Hopkinson is only a short walk from the city centre and located next to the train station and tram stop for easy visiting.

“Not only does Hopkinsons have their own resident ghosts but you can now visit with us at the Haunted Museum that will be located within the large basement area.”

“We will be opening 7 days a week from 11am – 8pm.”

The Haunted Museum first opened in Mapperley back in 2018 by paranormal investigator Mr Wesson and wife Marie, who put their spooky collection of artefacts on display to the general public.

Included in the macabre collection was a morgue fridge from Denbigh Insane Asylum in Wales, a 400 year old skull belonging to someone who fell victim to the plague and Thomas – a doll made from a dead husband’s bed bandages in the 1970s.
