EXPLORE MORE TOUR TICKETS ON SALE NOW
SAN JOSE, CA (July 5, 2021)—In another sign of a return to “normal” tour operations, the Winchester Mystery House announced today the return of their popular Explore More Tour on Saturday, July 19th. Launched in 2017, the Explore More Tour showcased areas of the iconic mansion that had never been accessible to the public before, plus areas that have been off-limits for decades. The intimate and unique tour experience (only 14 guests per tour) unveils many of the famed mansion’s most hidden hideaways and unexplained areas. Ticket sales begin July 5 and can be purchased by visiting WinchesterMysteryHouse.com.
Tour guests start their journey by being escorted through the front doors (a special moment for tour guests – Tthe lady of the house, Sarah Winchester, never used the front doors). From there, guests proceed to the third and fourth floors to visit such intriguing locales as the South Turret Witch’s Cap, the North Wing where remnants of the original seven-story tower remain from the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906 and the once ravishing Crystal Bedroom, plus lonely, dark corridors and the foreboding basement where paranormal activity has been experienced (hard hats are provided).
“The Explore More Tour continues to the most distinctive and unconventional tour we’ve ever offered,” states Walter Magnuson, General Manager of Winchester Mystery House. “On this tour we take guests from the highest areas the mansion all the way down to the depths of the basement, stopping in many rooms and areas that have rarely been seen over the past hundred years. From the intimacy of the tour to the locales visited it is truly unconventional in every way.”
