Ghost hunts at the Thackray Medical Museum can be a genuinely frightening experience; this is a vast location with many long, dark, eerie corridors where, on previous ghost hunts, footsteps have been heard, women screaming for help have been heard on spirit boxes, drastic temperature changes and these are just some of the strange happenings that some of team and guests have experienced. This location can send chills down your spine, even with the bravest guests. Are you ready to hold a vigil throughout the night to see who is haunting this location? Join the team as we invite you to become a real ghost hunter for the evening at the haunted Thackray Museum if you dare.

History Of Thackray Museum

The museum building has a long and chequered history.

It first opened in 1861 as the purpose-built Leeds Union Workhouse, a harsh and unwelcoming home for poor and homeless people with nowhere else to go. Over the years, new buildings were gradually added to the workhouse complex, including a separate infirmary.

More enlightened policies and the introduction of state support in the early twentieth century meant that workhouses were no longer needed, and in 1925 the Leeds Union Workhouse Infirmary was renamed St James’s Hospital. By 1945, the rest of the workhouse had merged with the hospital, and it became part of the NHS in 1948.

By the 1990s, the old Leeds Union Workhouse building was considered unfit for modern medicine. As a listed building, it could not be demolished, and Parliament permitted it to house the Thackray Medical Museum (now Thackray museum of Medicine), which opened in 1997.
