  1. My mother in law and I went to visit the museum. When we got there one of the volunteers was showing 2 ladies around. After they left, she came up to talk to us and the director. She said that the door to one of the rooms was closed when she got there. When she tried to open it, there was resistance. She thought it was a door stop that is normally in front of the door. She finally got it open and the door stop wasn’t there.. As she is telling us this story(we are standing in front of the door) she says ”something is pushing the door now”. The door was moving. I put my hand flat on it and it kept knocking into my hand.
