British Museum guards and visitors report seeing ghostly spectres, investigator claims


Foreign visitors to The British Museum claimed to have seen spooky spectres and guards described bizarre events after closing, according to an investigator who spent four years investigating the phenomenon.

Investigator and artist Noah Angell, from North Carolina, has since 2016 spoken with more than 50 people about apparent supernatural goings-on at the famous museum.

According to Mr Angell, foreign visitors described seeing a ghost of a woman with dwarfism in the reflection in a glass case after they took a photograph of a 16th-century mechanical galleon.

Guards also reported strange events, such as mysterious footsteps and ghostly crying while they patrolled the galleries.

Phil Heary, who said he worked at the museum for 29 years, said he felt the temperature drop dramatically when he was in the Ancient Egypt gallery.

He said: “It was like walking into a freezer. My stomach turned over. The feel of the gallery was – you wanted to get out.

“I’m a great believer that, wherever you’re buried, you should stay there. A lot of the mummies there should be back in their graves.”

Mr Angell started investigating the hauntings at the museum in 2016 after he learned about the apparent supernatural events in a London pub.

He said: “I thought that there would be a half dozen or so stories which everyone knows, and they circulated around the museum, and little variations and mutations are created.”

The 39-year-old now gives two-hour walking tours around the museum detailing the odd events and where they reportedly took place.

In another strange occurrence at about 3am above a staircase in the Great Court, the security team told Mr Angell they had heard an alarm sound from a disabled bathroom.

A CCTV operator called the team to say they could see large balls of white light surrounding them.

But, the guards reportedly said they couldn’t see anything of the sort.
