Castle of the Damned Opens this Weekend


Dare to venture on a guided tour of a transformed Hammond Castle Museum. Experience terror like never before, courtesy of Pastimes and Dean Calusdian. Don’t expect people dressed as vampires or bedsheet-wearing ghosts jumping out and yelling “Boo!” here…Castle of the Damned is out to chill your very soul with the most bizarre and disturbing displays you will ever experience.

Castle of the Damned is a “PG-13” show and may be too intense for younger visitors (or the faint of heart).
