I went last night for the Overnight Paranormal Investigation. The guide was helpful, interactive and the entire area is rich with history. The infirmary is in danger of being demolished and it needs to be preserved as it was one of the most active spots there! This place is worth the money just wear some comfortable shoes, you're going to be walking!

We did the overnight investigation of Cresson sanatorium/prison Friday 11/19/21. We had a great time! The staff was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and kind. Lots of time given to roam the grounds freely with equipment we could borrow from them. My friends and I will definitely do another investigation with this group! Thank you!

What a great, fun, well organized haunted experience! Perfect for me and my 15-year-old son. Definitely the scariest we've been to and that's the way we like it.

It was hard to find the place because the workers had moved some of the do not enter barriers - and we entered!

Once we got there, it was hard to find where to pay. I do not think many people in our group ended up paying.

There are port a potties and sanitizers.

They were ok with us wearing or not wearing masks.

The staff were very invested into the property, history and patient's sufferings. They took as much time as needed to answer all our questions, and we had a lot.

I would have enjoyed more facts - stories from people who had worked there, stories from people who had stayed there, any positive outcome stories of people who had left and reintroduced into society well.

The Pennhurst book introduction has a very concise and gut wrenching description of Eugenics and the mindset of society for why places like Pennhurst came into being - great opportunity to plug the book by reading excerpts from it! Especially the comments about how the mindset of society dehumanized the "feeble minded" and made it that much easier to do what was done.

Tell me some of the activities the residents did, what jobs did they have, what were the two sections (capable of learning and uncapable of learning).

It would go along way to redeem this time if the "foundation" put the money into the museum and the historical tour and reparation. If they care as much as they put on, then put your money where your mouth is and don't let this place fall apart around your ears.

That said, the beautiful stand up banner stories were right in line with what a "museum" should have in it. They were well written and well presented!

My only major concern was how healthy and safe was it to walk around a moldy, dusty, paint peeling building. What tests were done to ensure lead and asbestos isn't present!? That would be great information to present to the tour group.

Maybe even a script or a few iterations of a script for the tour. Develop the story - There was a grand idea. And this grand idea became warped along the way. The purpose of Pennhurst was ... But once it opened it became... Along the way, many attempted to redeem it...share any stories of people who worked there and their hearts for the patients. Share about the expose and court cases. Share about the operation grandparents where grandparents came in to play with the kids. AND CONTINUE to promote the idea that EVERYONE is made in the image of God and everyone no matter what they act like, think or look like - IT DOES NOT DISQUALIFY THEM FROM RECEIVING KINDNESS AND LOVE. That point was hammered home and my kids really got it.

And maybe the tour was different than some of the other reviews because it was all school aged kids. It would be interesting to know if there is a script or tour for adults vs. kids.

THIS place is an opportunity to learn about our brutal past and choose not to do it again! Dehumanizing people because they are "different" is not OK. And we risk repeating the past if we do not remember how awful our mindset and actions were in the past! We need history to remind us of how NOT TO ACT!

I implore the foundation to become accountable to its guests who PAY A LOT OF MONEY to visit their property. Make the accounting public. Make the numbers public. Become accountable to someone so this history will NOT pass away and many will learn how NOT to treat people who are different. There is a way to make money and preserve history. May God have mercy on your decisions.

Our night Paranormal investigation and historical tour by Autumn was absolutely fantastic! She was very informative, very knowledgeable and kept it fun and interesting. We had tons of activity on the numerous tools we put to use as well. We’ll definitely be back! Thank you Autumn and the fine folks over at Pennhurst Asylum!

Boring and waste of money. Unpleasant experience. Tour guide was honest about non activity. Group was too large.

We did the overnight investigation, First time doing anything like this, and it was worth every penny. So much fun but very spooky, make sure to ask for Kenny to be your guide, he was fantastic!
