Guided Investigations at the ABQ Press Club!
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, THE ABQ PRESS CLUB, FORMERLY THE WHITTLESEY HOUSE, IS OFFERING GUIDED PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION TOURS AND HORNS PARANORMAL IS THE EXCLUSIVE PROVIDER OF THESE HISTORIC TOURS!
HORNS Paranormal is offering exclusive, one-of-a-kind guided paranormal investigations of this historic landmark once a month. These are only available on the third Sunday of each month, beginning at 12 am, and lasting until 4 am, due to the club's hours and staffing. During the investigations, you are welcome to bring your equipment and do your own research, with certain restrictions. No seances, provocation of spirits or Ouija boards are allowed. A member of the HORNS team will be on hand at all times to answer questions or provide support. You can find our guidelines and what to expect during your time with us below.
This is truly a historic opportunity as access to the club in the past has been extremely limited for paranormal investigators. Now you can investigate one of New Mexico's most notoriously active sites for yourself and perhaps meet the spirits that remain in the house!
During the investigation we will provide a brief history, a few examples of activity we have caught ourselves, and then you will have several hours of uninterrupted investigations. Some refreshments will be available as well. And if you fall in love with this place, the way we have, you can become a member as well!

PUBLIC PARANORMAL GUIDED INVESTIGATIONS ($30 per person):
Approximately 3½ -4 hours in length. An introduction to the Albuquerque Press Club, formerly the Whittlesey house and initial walk-through with a knowledgeable guide will begin your journey with us. Afterwards, you will be free to use cameras, paranormal equipment and recorders to attempt to capture evidence on your own. A staff member and a member of HORNS Paranormal will be on hand at all times, able to answer questions and provide guidance for those less experienced. We strongly suggest no one under the age of 13 and no one under the age of 10 years old will be permitted as these tours do contain adult content that we feel may not be appropriate for small children. An adult must accompany anyone under the age of 18 at all times.
There will be a guide present, but they will not be with you during the entire event, they will be roaming around from group to group. Guests are free to walk around on assigned floor until they are moved to the next area by the staff investigator. You will be given an allotted time to investigate each area of the building. Excluding any areas where the public is not permitted.
Absolutely NO ONE ALLOWED on the property without a reservation. (NO PETS ALLOWED). Thank You!
*** IMPORTANT *** Once arriving to ABQ Press Club for your Investigation, the property will be locked and guests are expected to stay on the property until the end of the tour. Our security staff is there to help ensure that your time at the Press Club is uninterrupted, but we are not staffed to allow for the coming and going from the property for the duration of your Investigation. Please ensure to bring everything you will need with you when you come, including equipment, flashlights, water, and comfortable shoes. If an emergency arises, and you must leave the property for some reason, we will accommodate you, but we cannot have people coming and going. This is also for the benefit of the investigators, as this disrupts the process.
ADVANCE PAID RESERVATIONS REQUIRED FOR ALL TYPES OF TOURS & INVESTIGATIONS.
Tours at ABQ Press Club can be mildly strenuous for those who find it difficult to climb stairs, suffer from breathing issues or other health issues.Many of the rooms are small, designed in an earlier era. While in the building,we will have the lights off as much as possible, so anyone experiencing difficulty with their vision should be prepared for this. Although everyone is welcome, if you need help going up & down stairs or walking, hearing or seeing, please have someone scheduled to come with you to help you on the tour.
