The Creepiest & Most Haunted Places on Earth Are Offering Virtual Tours

While Halloween may look very different this year, it doesn't mean you can't still indulge in some spooky mischief. To help you get in the holiday spirit, we're putting together this celebrating guide, complete with virtual tours, candy tastings, spooky books & more. Dressing up or decking out your home for Halloween? Tag us in your photos @therelatedlife so we can see what you did (and maybe even repost your photo)!

Below, we've rounded up our favorite virtual tours of creepy & haunted spots around the world (in a case of a few of these, we're actually quite content to experience them remotely).

The Catacombs of Paris

Missing your French vacation this year? Take a virtual tour of the Parisian catacombs, where the bones of millions lie in underground tombs in the depths of the city. While the explanations for this tour are written in French, we think it's still a worthwhile journey even if you don't speak the language. Discover Now.



Here's a place you may actually prefer to visit virtually (though they insist tourism is safe). Eerie is the word for the images of the nuclear disaster zone, which remains spooky and abandoned nearly 40 years after the horrific accident took place. Discover Now.

Alcatraz Island

The good news about taking a virtual tour of Alcatraz is that you get to avoid the freezing cold ferry ride it takes to get there. Google Arts & Culture has rounded up a series of objects and stories from the island, so you can learn all about the history of the infamous prison (and its prisoners) from the comfort of your couch. Discover Now.

Isla de las Muñecas 

The Isla de las Muñecas.

Though perhaps less famous than the Catacombs or Chernobyl, the Isla de las Muñecas (translated: The Island of the Dolls) in Mexico certainly shares an equally creepy history. The island is quite literally covered in hanging dolls, which are said to possess the spirit of a little girl who washed up drowned on the shore. Discover Now. 


The Winchester House

The Winchester mansion

One of the most mysterious houses in the United States, the Winchester House in San Jose, California was built by the heiress to the Winchester Arms fortune. Rumors abound about what exactly compelled her to build the house the way she did – some say she was haunted by the ghosts of those who had been killed the Winchester rifles – but she spent a sizable portion of her fortune and 36 years constructing the house, which spans 24,000 square and features 160 rooms (including many that lead no where or have no windows). While you do have to pay to access a virtual tour, we think this may be worth the cost. Discover Now.
