Old Lyons History and Haunts


The Museum of Wayne County History's "Old Lyons History and Haunts" walking tours take place in historic Lyons, New York, on select Friday and Saturday nights in October. The tour begins at 7 PM at the steps of the former Wayne County Courthouse on 26 Church Street in Lyons and ends with an eerie tour of the cellblocks after dark inside the Museum of Wayne County History on Butternut Street. Each tour, led by an educated guide, lasts approximately 90 minutes and costs $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12. Please note that this tour consists of standing and walking outdoors on uneven ground, both uphill and down, for an extended period of time. Participants are encouraged to dress and plan accordingly. Tickets purchased on October 28th and 29th include discounted entry to Terror Behind Bars, located at the Museum of Wayne County History on Butternut Street - where the walking tour concludes. Tickets can be purchased online in advance or "at the steps" the night of, but advance reservations are highly encouraged.
