    We came here for an evening tour. They rush thru and you barely get a chance to ask questions or take pictures. They have another tour trailing right behind you and should really space the tours out.

    Docents love to chat and answer questions. Go when they first open and you will have the place to yourself!

    So cool want to come back when they do the evening tours. So much history for San Diego. A must along with the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

    Thought I saw a legit ghost until I realized it was just me in the reflection of the mirror.

    Forget orbs. I saw a young brunette in the children's room.

    It's probably better to go at night for maximum creepiness. Daylight is disarming to ghostly activity I think.

    Nothing is better than the Whaleys' garden. The pepper trees provide such a nice shade and the hydrangeas are HUGE!

    We already knew it was haunted, but didn't know it used to be a granary, County Court House, San Diego’s first commercial theater, a ballroom, a billiard hall, school, & a polling place! Cool stuff :) · March 7, 2012

    I had an eerie encounter in the courtroom, I heard a voice whisper across the room and nobody was there, also heard sounds of chairs sliding but nothing was moving.

    Fascinating to see everything as it was when the Whaleys lived there. Check out their events page for a schedule of ghost tours:

    As soon as you walk in you can feel the it the house or is it your mind just playing with you ;-)

    I had a few instances of strange things happening here. My camera kept turning red in the view screen when I've never had that happen before. I also felt like someone pulled my hair in the courtroom.

    Love what you've done with the place! Not your ordinary museum.

    Just like the History Channel, I highly recommend the SD Ghost Hunters tour. Very fun!

    Dezzie H 🌸 · September 26, 2010

    The Whaley House is said to be the most haunted house in the U.S. The Museum offers a late night paranormal investigation tour every last weekend of the month, co-hosted by The San Diego Ghost Hunters
