Experience the supernatural with Minneapolis's original Real Ghost Tours!

At Real Ghost Tours, we share real history, which can be scarier than any haunted house or gore fest.

Real Ghost Tours (, the original ghost tours of Minneapolis, are back for another season of guided, paranormal walking tours of the Saint Anthony Main neighborhood. Now mostly outdoors, this researched dramatization, drawing on real legends and real history in the actual places in which the people lived and died, the events that took place, and the ghosts that have been seen, is a scary and safe option for individuals and small groups this October.

Nowhere is paranormal existence more felt than in the oldest parts of Minneapolis. This is the site of the original St. Anthony Falls, which drew engineers and entrepreneurs, loggers and lumber pirates, saloonkeepers, floozies, and scoundrels of every stripe. Today, it is still the site of some of the city’s most historic buildings and, allegedly, its best-known ghosts.

“Nearly the entire history of Minneapolis in the last three centuries flows through Saint Anthony Falls and the old mills and buildings in this area,” said Bill Neuenschwander, owner of Mobile Entertainment, which runs Real Ghost Tours. “At Real Ghost Tours, we share real history, which can be scarier than any haunted house or gore fest.”

Real Ghost Tours combine stories, history, and participatory ghost-hunting into one 90-minute interactive experience. The tour takes place around the buildings of St. Anthony Main–– the oldest buildings in Minneapolis–– as well as the Pillsbury A Mill, the Soap Factory, and other places rich with interesting and paranormal history.

We employ high-quality audio equipment so folks can hear the content of the tour while distancing themselves from those outside their bubble. Tour guides will speak into a mic that will broadcast to individual Bluetooth speakers spread out amongst guests. Pre-recorded ghost stories and haunting music will play from the speakers between tour stops, too!
Tours cost $20 per person, but guests can purchase a paranormal investigation equipment kit for an additional $10 to gain hands on ghost hunting experience. The kits include dowsing rods, flashlights, and either an EMF meter or an infrared thermometer. Other spooky knick knacks will be available for purchase at our storefront, as well.

Tours run Thursday-Sunday from 7 p.m.- 1 a.m., and depart from 125 Main Street SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414 (from the Magical History Segway Tour store). For more information, call 952-888-9200 or visit
