I went to the asylum because I was bored after training for work. I had the best time. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. There are even discounts if you do more than one tour. Well worth the visit and money!

Scott was a great energetic and knowledgeable tour guide. I am very big skeptic on any ghost experience. But wife said she had a few experiences. Would love to come back and possibly do the night tour.

Day started soggy, but was still very educational. I enjoy Civil War history and never even thought about VA starting the project, but WV finishing. Our guide was well-versed and I learned many things. TALA had been on my bucket list for many years. As sun came out, car show got into full swing. A full-day trip for us, as we live in northeast Ohio.

The tour was very interesting and I was told a lot about the place that I did not know....A lot of historic information and artifacts...

We had so much fun when we participated in the overnight ghost hunt at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum.
