Learn all about Nanaimo’s spookiest and juiciest mysteries. Here are 5 things you can expect from the exhibit!


1. Corpse Pose

Take a #CorpsePoseNM Selfie in the chalked outline on the floor. Share with all your friends on Instagram and Facebook. Hopefully you don’t scare your family!

That’s right, Nanaimo had an active red light district. Take a look at the map and read about historical profiles of people involved in this part of Nanaimo’s history.

4. Step in someone else’s footprints

Stand on the spot right where a Museum Staff member stood when she saw a ghost in the Museum one morning (if you dare, of course). Plus, follow the footprints in the Nanaimo Mysteries exhibit to be taken on one route throughout the feature gallery that trail off into mystery.
