Coffin Works Museum Ghost Hunts


We don’t have any products to show here right now.


Coffin Works Museum
Birmingham, West Midlands



The Coffin Works Museum is a fascinating and unique building located in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham. Built between 1892-1894 by Edwin and Alfred Newman, the Newman Brothers Coffin Furniture Factory manufactured coffin furnishings for the deceased, providing metal handles, brass nameplates and decorations for their coffins. They served for hundreds of ordinary families and even those of royalty and nobility, like Sir Winston Churchill, King George V and King George VI, the Queen's Mother and Princess Diana. With over a 120 years of history and first-hand accounts of paranormal activity, do the hard workers of this once busy factory still come back here in the spirit world? Join us for a chilling paranormal investigation!



History coming soon.


The Coffin Works Museum features various reports and accounts of paranormal activity that will have you spooked.


The female spirit of Joyce Green is believed to still haunt this industrial place, with some visitors claiming to witness this lady walking around the first floor and appearing in her office. Does she come in visitation because of her love and dedication to the building?


Strange sounds of machinery has also been heard throughout the site, despite no one being around operating them. It's possible that many of the factory workers are still in the building doing their work.


A male presence has also been sensed wandering around the floors of the building, wearing a black hat and a suit. Is this one of the Newman brothers who continues his daily duties to this day?


Disembodied voices echo around the Warehouse and Shroud Room, and shadowy figures have also been seen crossing the Courtyard.


Your night of ghost hunting with Brookes Paranormal is guaranteed a fun, safe and spooky one. Experience this historic location with exclusive access after dark, as you explore the eerie rooms and areas in search for the ghostly spirits that haunt here. Here at The Coffin Works Museum, you will get to investigate the Stamp Shop, the Gift Shop, the Warehouse, the Shroud Room, the Secretary Office and the Courtyard.

Our team are friendly, professional, approachable and knowledgeable with paranormal investigating, and we will guide and support you to make sure you get the most out of your investigation. We welcome everyone from all walks of life, as our events are a safe space for all who love and enjoy the thrill of ghost hunting. Whether you're a paranormal novice or an experienced investigator, you'll be well-looked after and treated like family.

This is an honest ghost hunting experience, so there won't be any fakery or trickery during the night. We believe that if activity happens, it happens for real.

On your ghost hunt, you will be split into smaller groups to give you the best, personal experience possible. You will also get hands on with various pieces of ghost hunting equipment and participate in interesting paranormal experiments.
​ While we encourage everyone
to get involved in the night's vigils, you don't have to partake in experiments like Ouija Boards and the Estes Method if you don't
want to, we have plenty of other equipment for you to use.

You will also have a couple of breaks throughout the night, where we provide you with unlimited refreshments and snacks.
