Anyone who is remotely interested in the paranormal has seen some sort of paranormal tv series over the years. Zac Bagans (whom has an extensive list of paranormal series involvement such as Deadly possessions, Paranormal challenge and the very successful Ghost adventures and After shock series) has been a busy man collecting supposedly haunted items as a private collect for himself. As we all know collect can grow quickly and now Zac has decided to display his large and unusual collection in his latest paranormal venture in Las Vegas the aptly named The haunted museum.The Wengert house was built by Cyril Wengert a prominent banker, public utility manger and civic leader who helped turn Las Vegas for a town into a city on everyone's stop traveling through. The House itself is said to be dark and full of possible paranormal events happening from within its basement with reports of it being the home to a satanic circle gathering there during the 1970's to conduct rituals.
The haunted museum ( located within the house built in 1938 in Las Vegas) the museum will be split into 30 different rooms and themes to showcase his Items reported to be included in this paranormal collection are a room of porcelain dolls (which from previous ghost adventures episodes we know that Zac has a personal fear of). Bela Lugosi's (who played Dracula in 1931) cursed mirror and even more gruesome the mini bus which was previously owned by Jack Kevorkian or Dr Death from which inside he assisted suicides (numbers have been reported to be as high as 130 suicides) and the cauldron and shovel which Ed Gein also known as The Mad Butcher used to own before his death in 1984. Not only was Ed known as a murderer but also a body snatcher from local graveyards, the cauldrons and shovel were used to collect and fashion trophy's for his personal satisfaction.
Items that will be on limited display rotations will be inclusive of a Dibbuk box which is said to be a wine box cabinet that in Jewish folklore is believed to house restless, evil spirits. The hands resist him(painted by Bill Stoneham in 1972) which is said to cause sickness, screaming and fear and Robert the doll(originally created by by a set ant whom practiced black magic to a little boy by the name of Robert Eugene Otto in 1896 which has been rumored to curse it's owner and kill people.
While most items won't necessarily be haunted just strange Zac has public ally stated that his museum will be a must visit location for all traveling and living in Vegas along with the Mob museum and the Neon. While this museum is not open yet and has no date released to the public if you are interested you can catch some information and sneak peaks into what it will look like and what items will be inside by watching the tv series Deadly Possessions or the Ghost adventures episode(season 12 episode 13) dedicated to investigating the museum during its set up as he was having staff members leave due to the happenings from within.
