The Ghost of the Castle Show


Meet Sarah: The Capitol’s Resident Ghost

$2 per person

They have known for years that the castle was haunted. We're not joking. In "The Ghost of the Castle," a one-of-a-kind 4D immersive theatrical presentation, visitors come face to face with the ghost of Sarah Morgan, an authentic Civil War-era figure who loved the castle from the day it was built, and wrote passionately about it in her published book, Sarah Morgan: The Civil War Diary of a Southern Woman.

In the roughly 12-minute experience, Sarah's ghost conjures the building's remarkable trials through history, showcasing the determination of everyday Louisianans who have saved the castle time and time again. With floating images from the past surrounding the audience, this unique theater will amaze and delight visitors, deepening their interest in Louisiana history and causing them to personally identify with this historic building.
