We do! Well, maybe, not really, because we’re rational science folks, but then again, who knows? What we do believe in are spooks and creaks and things that go bump in the night.
The Smithsonian has a long and storied history of being a little haunted, which is only to be expected when you consider we keep our founder’s body in a crypt at the front door. (Most people would be content with an umbrella stand and a welcome mat.)
We’re planning on sharing some spooky Smithsonian stories in October. We know most of the historic ones, but we want to hear from you. Have you ever encountered anything a little…unusual…at work? A sudden chill in the air? A spectral voice? A flicker of movement seen from the corner of your eye when no one should be there? We want to hear from you!
Send your contact information and a synopsis of your story to firstname.lastname@example.org and be a part of our Smithsonian Spooktacular!
