IMPORTANT UPDATE – Due to the tremendous response, we are closing down online reservations for the Lantern Lit tours.
BUT there are a few spots still available, so please call the museum for more information about remaining tour availability at 732-381-0441. Leave a message if it’s outside of open hours, and someone will return your call as soon as possible.

There are still spaces for the post-tour Cemetery Investigation with Brian Cano – you can reserve your spot online for that below!

Thank you so much everyone!


JUST ADDED – Stay after your Lantern Lit Tour for a Paranormal Investigation of the Rahway Cemetery with Special Guest Brian Cano!
More info below


Join The Merchants and Drovers Tavern Museum the weekend before Halloween for our annual lantern-lit, nighttime tours of the historic Rahway Cemetery. Our spirit guides will share eerie and true tales of unsolved murders, tragic deaths, and the rumored hauntings witnessed in both the cemetery and the Museum.

Five tours will be given on Friday and Saturday nights, October 23rd and 24th at 7:30, 8:00, 8:30, 9:00, and 9:30. Tours take approximately one hour and end with refreshments in the Museum yard. Tickets are $20.00 and may be purchased through PayPal below, or reserved via phone and paid for on the night of the tour. (These tours are designed for teen and adult audiences.)

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s tour will be limited in size and will observe appropriate social distancing and safety per CDC guidelines.


Reservations are REQUIRED – there will be no admission on the night of the event without prior reservations. People without tickets or an advance reservation will not be allowed on the premises, as this could lead to the site being over capacity. We appreciate your understanding.


For this reason, tour sizes will be smaller than previous years, so these tours will sell out fast – so make your reservation online, or call the Museum at 732-381-0441!

Brian Cano, Paranormal Investigator

And Just Added – Stay for an hour-long paranormal investigation after your tour with our Special Guest, Brian Cano!

Two chances each night to join Brian Cano after your Lantern Lit Tour, at 10PM and 11:15PM. Space is also limited to 15 people per investigation, so save YOUR spot by reserving online!

PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning on attending our 9:30 Lantern Lit Tour, you will need to sign up for the 11:15 Investigation – the 9:30 Lantern Lit Tour will not be finished in time for the 10pm tour.

UPDATE – The Friday AND Saturday night 10PM tours are officially sold out, and very few spots remain in the other tours! Don’t wait – reserve your spot now!


Investigation with Brian Cano: $30
