Before it was a museum, this was a World War I hospital. An Australian named Thomas Hunter has been seen here since hours after his passing in 1916; he is usually on the staircase. In the cellar, a hooded figure slams doors and throws objects. Some five other ghosts are reported throughout including a woman called “Lady Charlotte” and a little girl in the geology area.
