******Due to COVID-19 restrictions could apply depending on local, state and federal requirements***
Private investigations allow you to investigate the museum with your group, and greatly reduces the chance of contaminated evidence by controlling who’s investigating, when and where. This is by far the best way to investigate.
You must verify the date(s) you would like for your private investigation are available.Private investigations require a minimum of 10 people and anything over 10 people will require $42 per person. 10 people works out to $420, however you do not need 10 people, the minimum for a public investigation would be $420 either way.A non refundable deposit of $150 is required to hold your date, with the remainder of the $270 (Total of $420 for 10 minimum) due 2 weeks prior to your investigation date. Failure to pay 2 weeks prior to your date, will result in the loss of your deposit, unless other arrangements were made or a cancellation by The Old Mill Museum Staff.A list of all the people coming, and the contact info for the group and person reserving the investigation are required. The person reserving must provide us with their name, address, phone number and e-mail address. We will use this information only to contact you in the event of a cancellation or similar issue.
