Pabst Mansion to offer 'Illuminating the Dark Tours' every Friday in October

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Pabst Mansion will offer a new, dark experience just in the time for Halloween. 

Every Friday evening in October, "Illuminating the Dark Tours" will be set in the dimly lit Mansion, explore themes of darkness and will reveal often unseen spaces.

A news release says, the new specialty and afterhours tour will offer visitors an opportunity to see the Pabst Mansion in a ‘new light’.

“Visitors will be guided by candlelight as they travel through the home,” said Jocelyn Slocum, a Pabst Mansion staff member. She continued “the tour explores the dark, in areas varying from literal light sources in the home, to approaching the darkness of loss, to viewing hidden compartments and seldom-seen basement spaces.”

The tour was created as a new way to explore the historic Pabst Mansion and its interiors during an appropriately festive time of year leading up to Halloween.

Tour tickets can be purchased HERE.

Tickets are limited and so it is encouraged to buy tickets soon for the tour which takes place at 5:30 p.m. on Friday’s in October. On-site tickets will be available as inventory allows. Ticket prices are $22 per person and members/students/military are $20 per person.
