About Whaley House Museum, San Diego

This 1857 Greek Revival was the home of Thomas Whaley. Built on the site of a graveyard, it is one of the country's most famous haunted houses. It's said the house has been more significantly involved in San Diego's history than any other building in the city, having played a role as a court, store, ballroom, and polling place. Visitors can explore the house in guided tours. The guides are excellent storytellers and really great at creating an atmosphere of dread and mystery, and are dressed as if they were characters from the 19th century.

Whaley House Museum, San Diego Reviews

  • Our guide, Dave, was amazing. There's A lot of history here. Flash photography is allowed and encouraged, but no video or audio recording. The air upstairs is thick and full of energy. My kids saw orbs before our cameras caught them. A great place to visit if you want to learn something and are interested in the paranormal. We had the last tour of the night, which was 9pm. I want to go back.

  • Very historic and educational self-guided tour. The staff were quick to answer questions anyone had. The house is beautiful in itself and very well-preserved. The atmosphere was very...interesting and quite mysterious, especially upstairs. I'd love to go back for the night tours. If you're interested in historic places, definitely check it out!

  • Great piece of history and a nice town to explore as well. The house still seems as if the original owners still reside in the place. Ghosts or no ghosts you'll enjoy touring this little place and learn a little history.

  • A well preserved piece of San Diego history, with some extra perks. The day tour is a self-guided one, with information given on the different rooms in the house. Docents are available to answer any questions, or to give more information on the history and residents of the house. While supernatural encounters are frequent here, don't expect a spook during a visit. It's a low cost way to spend between a 1/2 hour to a full hour, if you take your time.

  • Great experience. Cheap admission. We basically got a free and VIP tour. It was a slow day and we had a great conversation with the staff. We will be coming again. Nice historic museum. Although you may not experience so much paranormal stuff on one trip. It's nice to go. My boyfriend and I experienced something the worker told us to do. It was bizarre. We loved visiting.
