“Great from the outside - I wish I could get in!”
Review of Valentown Museum

Valentown Museum
Reviewed 8 February 2014

I have visited this intriguing (and supposedly haunted) museum on three different occasions, and I have yet to be able to get in! No one is ever there! (Maybe because it is haunted!) It's a great place to stroll the grounds, and the main building is 135 years old. Built in 1879, it has been used to accumulate much history from the area around Victor, as well as the city of Rochester. There are a few other buildings around there that are part of the complex as well.

I'm glad to see the Victor Historical Society stepped in and helped out by purchasing the facility. It's a great piece of this lineage of the town, and deserved to be preserved.

Cool place to visit with a TON of history. Its crazy to imagine all that went on in this large house within the last 200 years. I couldn't help but feeling 'strange' while I walked from room to room. The air sometimes felt stiff and then at moments it felt cold and breezy. It was quite freaky. I would totally recommend visiting this place, simply because it is rich with old tools of the trade, like a doctors "office" and a leathermans work station, etc... There is even a great ballroom upstairs. Spooky but totally worth the visit.

It was a lot of fun there. Went for their Holloween Haunted House, they do a great job there.

This place is fabulous! To check it further check out website for hours! It is closed for winter, but opens again in spring! This is a place with lots of history. Also, was shown on SyFy's "Ghost Hunters (TAPS) episode. I was fortunate enough to go the weekend of 10/16-10/18, and meet Brian Harnois a former member of "TAPS", and get to investigate with him at Valentown and a town called Palmyra. It was awesome, had lots of activity in several places! If you ever go to the Rochester area in NY, make sure you stop to visit.
Also, the town of Palmyra "Phelp's General Store" especially if you are into the paranormal and history!! The person in charge is Carol, she is so sweet and helpful, so if you need to call or email do not hesitate!
