Nothing happened to my group, sadly. But, towards the end of our tour last Halloween, the group behind us began screaming. We thought it was part of the Fright Night or something because the tour guide left to go see what was wrong. So, we followed her and when she opened the door, the group and their guide ran out screaming! The tour guide lady herself said that all the doors had slammed shut and would not open and that all their flash lights refused to turn on. It was pretty scary! She refused to go back to work that night.

My husband and i took the tour on our honeymoon. We did not know photographs were not allowed. he took several digital shots in the storage room that were fine but for the rest of the tour his camera kept trying to focus no matter the lighting, the camera setting, flash or location until he gave up. Once we were in the back scenes tour and gardens his camers worked again. having been to WH several times in previous years it did not suprise me.

I felt like I couldn't breathe properly. The air was so heavy. Everyone else seemed fine but there was something about that room that made me feel lightheaded. It was as if I had to force myself to stay balanced.

My mom & I went about a year ago & asked our tour guide about the hauntings & he looked at us like we were crazy & laughed. I didnt feel anything anyway. I'm not saying the house isnt haunted but I didnt feel anything & I usually do.

Not only is the storeroom amazing, but it is haunted. They hide behind all the crates. The look like workman, but they are very shy and don't stay long.

I walked into the room and I have never felt so cold. I grew up in Nebraska and this was colder. I had to leave the room and still did not warm up for about ten minutes.

We wanted to share this interesting picture with your readers. In August of 2007 my wife and I went to the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose. The attached picture was taken with our digital camera a little after 1 pm. This was taken in the room named the “25,000 Dollar room”, that contained a lot of unused decorations and stained-glass windows. While scrolling thought the pictures I noticed something different. To the left of the white post in the middle of the picture is the shadow of someone or something wearing a hat.

On our tour on December 24, 2003 we witnessed a woman's face appear in one of the Tiffany glass jeweled windows. I am not a religious person who believes in God or the afterlife but I know what I saw and I will never come back again.

I don’t believe that the house is haunted in the traditional sense. I think that spirits visit the house, because Sarah Winchester was receptive to this. I think the spirits don’t want to harm, they have things to communicate. We need to learn how to listen.

When I was young girl, I had a pony that I loved. He died a long time ago. I swear that when I entered the stable at the Winchester Mystery House I felt the spirit of my long-gone horse. It was an experience that I will never forget.

You want to come in touch with beings from the afterworld, than you must visit on a Friday the 13th.

The ballroom is the best place to catch a glimpse of a spirit.

I’ve been to most of the “haunted houses” in the United States and the Winchester Mystery House has the most inhabitants from the spirit world. I plan on visiting again.
