Ghost Adventures – Museum of the Mountain West – S15E10

ga-museum-of-the-mountain-westIt’s time for Montrose, Colorado and a visit to the Museum of the Mountain West, a series of 20 buildings brought together to house 500,00 western artifacts. These buildings have a dark past with multiple documented deaths, including The Murder House. Zak feels all these items with dark energy have created a vortex of trouble.

They begin by talking with Rich, the owner, who says a woman named Wanda died in the very room they’re standing in. Mind you, she died of documented medical problems, not supernatural forces. After she passed, a broken clock started working. Three days later when she was buried, the clock stopped again.

Bob, the activities director, shares that he’s been suffering a series of medical conditions over the 13 years he’s worked at the museum. So too has Cody, a tour guide. But neither have left their jobs. Rather than a medical condition or environmental factors, Zak says dark energy causes these ailments.

They next meet with Dr Mark Todd, who brought students to investigate the museum. Together, they go the carriage house where a Native American was supposedly hung and a man supposedly died from a kick to the head by a horse.

Their final guest is Hector, who investigated the Murder House at it’s original location. They get a few blips and believe one says, "to the basement" when asked about the bodies.

It is interesting to note, Zak says there are multiple "documented" deaths. However, as they discuss each story, each is preceded with, "The story goes". This includes the main story of a man killing his wife and family in the "murder house". Jay does research using actual news sources and there isn’t a story that matches the "legend" of the house. There are two tragic stories, with one being "close" that happened decades ago. Neither story is linked to the house they’re investigating.

With these dubious stories in mind, they start off the investigation by sending Jay to the carriage house while Zak, Billy and Aaron head to the main museum where Wanda died.

As Zak stands at the end of the pool table, they get the word, "ghost’ on the Talking EVP Device. This is followed by "guy", "shot", "cough", "George" and "Kate". At the same time, Zak says he sees a black mass, but as always, it’s behind the camera. Oddly, none of these reference Wanda and come across as random words.

We have another example of a board falling which is attributed to supernatural forces. Zak believes the SLS camera captures a figure kicking a board down the stairs. Billy shows where the board was, and how easily it can be moved, but firmly says that’s what happened.

For a final piece of evidence, Zak hears a growl and nearly falls over. To find out what manner of terrible creature made it, he sends Aaron down the hall by himself, while he hangs back like a coward. What happens next should have been seen from a mile away.

Like so many other episodes, Aaron feels weird, gets a headache, then has stabbing pains in his arm and neck. He claims something is touching him, which Zak says is dark energy. It’s all too much pain and suffering so Aaron goes outside. He doesn’t need any medical help though, he needs to investigate the murder house.

Billy and Aaron get a female voice, followed by a male voice. However, they’ve run out of time and bring the night to a close.

While it looks to be a really interesting place, it’s hard to say if they’ve captured anything of substance. Having documented deaths isn’t really an accurate statement. The power of "Wanda" didn’t materialize like they hoped. Aaron gets his usual stabbing pains. And Jay is left along in a carriage house to uncover footsteps.

None of this falls into the "dark energy" category that’s for sure.

    Once again, as is usually the case, Zak and Co. try to fit various circumstances into an eeeeeevil narrative. After all, there is no possible way that the people who suffered health problems had issues to begin with and/or had issues worsened by the conditions of the exhibits and nearby area. (Do an internet search for “Montrose AND toxicity” for some interesting hits about hazardous materials.) We also have vague stories and legends of what *might* have happened with no first-hand or recorded accounts. (Why were there seemingly no records, deeds, etc about the Murder House?) Also, like so many episodes, we have Zak, Aaron, et al relying on what they’re feeling or sensing. In other words, sensations which can’t be verified or proven, but simply taken at face value.
