Winchester Mystery House
Tour the rambling, mysterious mansion
Date: The 13th of every month from 6:30pm to 10:30pm
Ages: Teens and up Admission Fees: $30.00 - $49.00

Since her death, millions of people have visited her home and many report the sightings of ghosts. Was the house built solely as a monument to the dead or do the phantoms Sarah communed with in life, or perhaps Sarah herself, still lurk nightly in the maze-like corridors of the Winchester Mystery House?

The tradition of Sarah Winchester's bizarre legacy continues...

 

Tickets for special events are available in advance online.


Special 65 minute Flashlight Tours of the Winchester Mansion are given every Friday the 13th and on select evenings in October. You'll tour the rambling, mysterious mansion at night with only the moonlight, a souvenir flashlight, and your imagination to provide illumination through the bewildering maze of rooms and stairways. But watch your back, Sarah could be waiting around any turn. This is one open house you'll never forget.

 

With admission, also enjoy extra entertainment on the estate from awe-inspiring magicians, to balloon artists, to caricature illustrators! Entertainment varies per evening, all entertainment is included in the cost of your ticket - limited availability, first come, first served on items such as caricature art.


Due to the popularity of the Flashlight Tours, we highly recommend you purchase your tickets ahead of time. Friday the 13th tickets go on sale approximately 1 month in advance of the event. This event WILL sell out and when it does, tickets will not be available at Box Office on the night of the event.

 

In tribute to Mrs. Winchester's fascination with the number 13, celebrity "Bell Ringers" sound the old tower bell 13 times at 1300 hours every Friday the 13th.

Ages: All

A new exhibit-Saratoga and the 1915 Pan Pacific Exposition-100 Year Centennial opens February 13 at the Saratoga History Museum.

 

The Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) was a world's fair held in San Francisco, in the United States, between February 20 and December 4 in 1915. The purpose was to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal but the reality was to demonstrate that San Francisco had recovered from the 1906 earthquake.

 

The fair was constructed on a 635 site in San Francisco. It featured 11 Exhibit Palaces with over 40 countries and all the states participating. Among the exhibits at the Exposition was the C. P. Huntington, the first steam locomotive purchased by Southern Pacific Railroad; A telephone line was also established to New York so people across the continent could hear the Pacific Ocean. The Liberty Bell traveled by train on a nationwide tour from Pennsylvania to attend the exposition. Henry Ford had cars assembled every 10 minutes for 3 hours each day.

 

The exhibit will cover the PPIE exhibit and include information on Saratogans participating. The exhibit will run from February -June 26. Fair artifacts and ephemera will be on display.
