New cameras capture spooky goings-on during lockdown at The Haunted Museum in Mapperley


The Haunted Museum in Mapperley is, unsurprisingly, home to a number of spooky happenings and these are now being captured on live cameras during lockdown.

The museum on Woodborough Road is one of the borough’s top tourist attractions but has now been forced to close its doors temporarily during the UK-wide lockdown.

To help keep it operational, the venue has installed a number of HD cameras covering the most haunted parts of the museum and these are now available to watch via the attraction’s website, for a fee.

The new cameras went live yesterday and have already attracted attention from across the globe.

Museum owner Steve Wesson said he hopes the cameras will help plug the museum funding gap caused by lockdown.

He told Gedling Eye: “We had to close six weeks ago and we haven’t had any relief from anywhere and the bills are still coming in.

We thought it would be a great idea for people that visited us from around the world and people that can’t visit the museum to see what Nottingham does have to offer so we set up 12 live cameras in the museum.

“It’s been a challenge and taken nearly five weeks to complete but we are pretty much live now.”
