Bring Some Spook to Your Summer with the Ghost Tours of Old Town

Albuquerque has a rich history, reaching 300 years into the past…and a lot can happen in three hundred years. The Old Town Ghost Tours not only detail some of the most important happenings around Albuquerque, they also shed some light on a few of the spookiest stories in the city.

Interested in learning a little more about a darker side of local history? Here’s what you need to know about the Ghost Tours of Old Town.

The Details

Sure, you could take a regular tour of Old Town, but why not spice things up a little bit? The Ghost Tour takes you through dark back alleys, down the halls of historic buildings, and through hidden cemeteries, all in search of the concealed secrets and lost souls of the city.

Tours last for 105 minutes, and you’ll have a professional guide leading you by lantern light through each of the sites and stops. You won’t find haunted-house scares, like costumed ghouls jumping out or flashing lights and spooky soundtracks. What you will find is the fascinating, and sometimes unsettling, history of Albuquerque—with a paranormal twist. You can even rent ghost hunting equipment to bring along on the tour!

Ghosts in Albuquerque?

Did you know that Albuquerque is actually known as a hot spot for ghost activity? It’s true: we’ve even got a few famous ghosts in the city!

There are less-threatening spirits, like Bobby Darnall, a six-year-old boy who passed away after an explosion in the Kimo Theatre. Rumor has it that he loves doughnuts and must be appeased every now and then—or else he may blow out light bulbs or mess with the theatre’s power.

But there are also a few more chilling specters that find a home in the city—like the Lady in Black, who haunts the Chapel of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Old Town. People say that she often appears in the chapel pews, dressed in all black, sobbing, praying, or meditating. Some paranormal investigators even claim to have audio and photographic evidence proof of her existence.

Who knows who you’ll encounter on the Ghost Tour?

Sign up for Your Tour

A map, camera, money, and a compass.

Ghost Tours happen nearly every night of the year, excluding holidays and select days, and start at 8pm. Tickets should be purchased online at least 2 hours in advance, and prices are as follows:

  • Adult: $25
  • Seniors (55+), Military, EMT, Teachers, College students: $22
  • Students (13-17): $17
  • Youth (6-12): $10
  • Children 5 and under: Free

While the tour is certainly spooky, it’s rated PG, so feel free to bring the kiddos along! If you want to turn up the scare factor to PG-13, be sure to check out the Moonlight Ghost Tour, which happens at 10pm.

Find Your Home in Albuquerque

Aside from Ghost Tours, there’s plenty of things to do around Old Town and Albuquerque, from summertime concerts to history tours to weeklong fiestas. Life here is truly one-of-a-kind!

Dive in to Local Arts & Culture at the Latest Albuquerque Museum Exhibit

One of the benefits of living in a place like Albuquerque is the chance to learn about and experience a variety of cultures. The Albuquerque Museum strives to showcase works, pieces, and stories from a wide spectrum of people, and the latest exhibit is no exception.

“Visions of the Hispanic World”

A woman at an art exhibitThe exhibit as a whole details the narrative of cultures in Spain and how their influence and heritage grew within the area and still does today. Over 220 works are included, covering 3,00 years of time and history. Some of the works have never even been exhibited before!

The pieces on display are all part of the Hispanic Society’s own Museum and Library collections, and will include things like archaeological artifacts from the Iberian Peninsula, art work from Islamic Spain, and manuscripts from a variety of ages, as well as sculptures, decorative arts, and paintings. The pieces date all the way back to the Medieval Age and stretch to the early 20th century.

The goal of the exhibit is to allow New Mexican residents to both observe the larger world culture, as well as see how their own region was influenced by the Hispanic world.

Part I

An ancient bustThe first part of the exhibit takes place November 10th through March 31st and will deal with the oldest works. The Ancient, Islamic, Medieval, Golden Age, Colonial, and 19th century Spain and Latin America will be showcased.

Part II

Part II will take place from December 22nd to March 31st. While it covers a significantly smaller period, – painter Francisco de Goya through the 1920s in Spain – it still offers a wealth of material. Often referred to as the father of modern art, Goya had an enormous impact on the artistic that still shows up today.

Visit the Exhibit
