Come see the world’s first mobile museum of the unexplained, the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal  is the only place where curious guests can hold real haunted objects, meet the experts who’ve spent their lives collecting supernaturally-influenced artifacts and researching the unexplained, and even help further the field of paranormal research by investigating the mysterious pieces themselves. You can also attend a Paranormal Investigation with Greg and Dana at the famous Sallie House and McInteer Villa and join them for a paranormal lecture. It’s a weekend you won’t want to miss! 

Greg and Dana’s mission is to bring allegedly haunted, and otherwise supernaturally-influenced objects to the public in an effort to promote further study into the timeless mysteries of the unexplained. 

Rather than hoard their incredible collection of haunted items behind a dusty glass case at Weird HQ, paranormal investigators Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews established The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal, a roving display of the most fascinating artifacts collected during their supernatural adventures. 

Since 2014, Greg and Dana’s traveling museum of the weird has been fascinating, educating, and terrifying guests at some of the country’s most popular conventions and private events like Strange Escapes, ScareFest, and Ghost Adventures‘ Nick Groff’s cross-country tour. 

By freely sharing the only collection of independently-studied haunted objects in the world, the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal provides unprecedented access to evidence of the supernatural, removing items of paranormal notoriety from private collectors and placing them directly into the hands of those curious about the wide world of the strange and the unexplained.

With a few extreme exceptions, all artifacts in the museum are available to view, hold, photograph, and even test by the general public and paranormal investigators alike. 

The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal is curated by Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews, paranormal professionals with two decades of experience in the investigation of the strange and the unexplained.

Often referred to as the real-life Mulder and Scully, Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews are full-time paranormal investigators and internationally-recognized authorities in the areas of haunted objects, paranormal research, and all things unexplained. Their groundbreaking work in the fields of parapsychology, and cryptozoology, have seen the duo featured in numerous appearances on television shows such as Finding Bigfoot (Animal Planet), Kindred Spirits (TLC) and Mysteries at the Museum (Travel) as well as in leading news outlets like The Independent, Nerdist, and Coast to Coast AM. 

For the last twenty years, Greg and Dana have traversed North America on hundreds of paranormal adventures in search of everything from legendary monsters to mind bending psychic phenomena, covering everything in between. They’ve come face-to-face with Bigfoot deep in the hills of West Virginia , and grappled with ghosts in rural Pennsylvania, to name just a few adventures. 

When they’re not actively tracking down the strange and the unexplained, Greg and Dana can be found across the country presenting eye-popping multimedia lectures on the subject of the paranormal, consulting on major media projects on the supernatural, and presenting the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal (as seen on TLC's 'Paranormal Lockdown') to thousands of fascinated visitors from California to Maine. They're also the founders and editors of the Week in Weird, the web’s most-read news sources for true tales of paranormal, and the just plain weird.
