Join us at Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village for a night of frights as we celebrate Halloween with a Victorian Séance Series. These programs are designed especially for BNHV by Joel Dombrowski of  For four nights this Autumn, we will be learning about Spiritualism, Victorian mourning culture, and how death impacted the Western New York community in the 19th century. Each evening will begin with a talk and finish with a Victorian-style séance.

We are pleased to offer two different séance styles after the lecture: the Trumpet Horn program and the Crystal Ball program. The programs will begin with a talk by Mr. Dombrowski in the museum’s ballroom. Following a brief break, those attending the Trumpet Horn program will remain in the ballroom for a séance with one of our guest mediums. After the break, those attending the Crystal Ball program will venture out into the village and participate in a séance in one of the museum’s historic buildings.

The Trumpet Horn program includes a talk by Mr. Dombrowski and a Victorian-style séance with one of our guest mediums in the museum ballroom. There are only 10 open spaces directly surrounding the séance table and each space is reserved on a first-come-first-served basis. There is an additional outer loop for participants who would still like to take part in the séance component of the experience. Regardless of your seat during the séance, the Trumpet Horn program ticket price is: $35 per person. The Trumpet Horn program is a handicapped accessible option.

The Crystal Ball program includes the talk by Mr. Dombrowski and a Victorian-style séance with one of our guest mediums in one of the museum’s historic buildings. There are only 10 Crystal Ball Level tickets available and are reserved on a first come, first served basis.  The Crystal Ball program ticket price is $50 per person. The Crystal Ball program séance will take place in an historic building and is not handicapped accessible.
