Investigation at Alameda Naval Air Museum

Paranormal Investigation for members only (no guests allowed and no one under the age of 18)

This location has never been investigated before by anyone. We are the first.

Cost - $55.00 per person (payable at time of RSVP)

We will have 6 hours to investigate 3 floors. We will be separated into 3 groups of 5-6 depending on how many people sign up.  Please do not wear any perfume, cologne or scented lotions - as it makes it hard to determine phantom smells. Please feel free to bring any equipment except for Ouija boards and headlamp style flashlights. You can bring food and drinks (non alcoholic) that can be left in the cafeteria area, which will be our setup area and also where we take our break.

History and Area of Investigation:

The building was commissioned on November 1, 1940 and completed in January 1941 and spans 18,000 square feet, covering 3 floors. The building served as many things, including an Air Terminal for personnel that were transferring from base to base.

The base was also once part of an Indian burial ground and later part of a Spanish land grant of Don Luis Maria Peralta. The original site was 300 acres and when the station closed in 1997 the total area was 2,527 acres or one-third of the island of Alameda.

We will have access to all 3 floors, including exhibits of World War I and World War II artifacts, uniforms, helmets and many other items. Also a library, makeshift medical area, walk-in vault and a multitude of memorabilia including a Pan Am exhibit.

Paranormal Claims:

I wasn't going to list anything here because the location has never been investigated before, but after a 3 1/2 hour walkthrough I can definitely say that the location is active. I recorded the entire tour and in the first 16 minutes I probably got 10-15 EVP's, the first one in under 2 minutes. I am just guessing that the spirits were excited that someone was coming there to try to communicate with them and hear their history. I think this is going to be a really good experience and I am looking forward to sharing it with you.

    I'm really late in getting this posted.
    We were in the very back room with all the extra airplane equipment. It said this spot used to be a native american burial ground so I played some native american music. When I turned if off we heard a crowd screaming. We couldn't see anyone around, it was probably around 10 or 11pm. We never heard it again.

    Sorry that this is so late...I've been on vacation (did a little investigating). Thank you to everyone for another great investigation. I hear that some of the groups had some pretty good experiences. My group was great. We had lots of evp's, flashlight play and some crazy static energy. The spirits were positive and we even had a little girl spirit following us around and running laps with me lol. Thanks to the ANAM for letting us investigate this location. Special thanks to Curtis (get that head looked at), Mary (hope you get some much needed surgery on your neck soon) and to Bill Benjamin (Thanks for holding my recorder for me). I look forward to reviewing my evidence and hearing from everyone else about what they got. Thanks again and on to the next....

    Just wanted to thank Laura and everyone for letting me be a part of the investigation Saturday had a very exciting night for a beginner. Hope to be a regular at future gatherings.

    Hi everyone. I investigated the Museum on 7/26/14 and have posted a number of EVPs I recorded that night on my blog (www.ghostworld.org). When you get to the blog, type "7/26/14" into the search bar. A number of posts will come up; to listen to the actual recordings and read my short analysis of each one, click on the TITLE of the blog post you're interested in. Doing so will take you directly to that blog post. Sorry I didn't post this before your investigation, I was just too busy to do so.

    This was a great place to investigate. Each of the three levels was full of history and trigger items. The spirits warmed up to us and were plentiful. The only area where we did not feel welcome was the work shop on the ground floor.

      May I post that photo of you and the orbs?

      Absolutely!

    Thank you to Laura and all the BAGH members with whom I investigated!
    My favorite EVP was when someone asked the Pam Am mannequin who the phone call was for. The EVP came back, "The call is for you." At the time the team I was on didn't know that Laura asked the spirits on her floor to go to the second floor and say "hi" to us.
    We were in the kitchen and got at least five well modulated EVP's saying, "Hi".

    I have been experimenting with an I=phone Ap called Ghost Detect Pro. It takes photos when the EMF's alter. During the 5 hours I had it on it took only 7 photos. Some didn't have anything discernible but a couple did, I will post them after and if I get permission from the people in the photos.

    Like all other investigations I went on with Laura, this one also didn't disappoint. Amazing location and tons of activity on each level. Personally, my favorite experience was in the bar area when Laura became temporary 'static'.

    Thank you, Laura, and everyone else for making this a successful event. Looking forward seeing you all at the next investigation!

    Very active investigation. We had a lot of flashlight responses and a good amount of evps.....the best one probably answerisng "strip poker" in response to our question. Also interesting was when we asked the spirits to ring a bell in response to one of our questions. We heard a bill on the playback, but the kind of belll we heard was not in the room. They also moved a model airplane as requested. Lots of activity and some laughs too.

    This seemed to be a lot more positive than the last time! Last time I got some creepy comments and weird voices-this time it seemed like the spirits were friendlier and more polite. Always an interesting time & it was funny to joke with the spirits about strip poker and mannequin phone calls! For the record the spirit in Sick Bay said his favorite mannequin is "the little one". Thanks to team 3 for all your participation and to Laura for running the show!

    I had a really great time on this first investigation with Laura's meet up. We had lots of flashlight play and quite a few EVPs. We even got the spirits to move a model plane in the theater room. I look forward to many more investigations with this group. Thank you very much for the invite.

    Great investigation and a fun time. Good evp's and lots of flashlight responses. Uniform room aka sweatshop still makes me laugh and the native american music helped solicit respones. Some "rules" were broken, but it resulted in favorable outcomes. I enjoyed working team one and special thanks to curtis, mary, and bill. Thanks laura for running the ship and for the grub!

    Sorry I have to cancel. I broke my finger and dealing with a good deal of discomfort. I'll catch the next one - hopefully with no broken bones.

  • Vennesa C.

    Thanks for the help. I'm coming from Newark. I see north of Trident Street there is a small building on the right(it appears to be fenced in/"set back ffrom the road"). Is this it?

    September 23, 2014

    • Laura J

      Yeah you will also see signs for the museum. I deleted your message with your phone number in it because anyone on this site can access that. I wrote it down and will call you later this evening.

      September 23, 2014

  • Tery C.

    I took a ride over there today. It is near the corner of Ferry Pt. and Tower Ave. It is set back a bit but the numbers are very visible.

    I'm going. I will pay tomorrow as soon as I get home from work.

    September 3, 2014

    • Laura J

      Hi Luisa, Are you still planning on going? I don't see you on the sign-up list.

      September 11, 2014

    • Luisa

      Hi Laura, I won't make it this Saturday. I have to go to Nevada City. I'll try next time.

      September 22, 2014

  • Vennesa C.

    when I google map the Naval Museum I come to a building on W Midway(nearest cross street Saratoga st) is this correct or am I way off? I googled Ferry Pt#77 but there was nothing but a parking lot.

    September 22, 2014

    • Laura J

      Hi Vennesa, If you click on the "edit map" line right next to the address of the investigation (above these comments) it shows approximately where it is. I'm not sure where you are coming from but if you come through the Webster tunnel and pass the college on the right, make a right hand turn on Atlantic/Ralph Appezzato Memorial Pkwy, go all the way to the end which is Ferry Pt., make a right and the first building (setback from the road) is it. There are signs for the museum as you are going that direction. let me know if you have any more questions.

    Hi All, this is only my third investigation but so far it's been an awesome experience. My dad retired from Alameda NAS 34 years ago so I feel like I have a connection to the location. Who knows, maybe he'll decide to pop in and say "hello". See everyone on the 27th!

    Counting down the days. Super excited for my very first ghost hunt.

    Thanks Guys!! you rock!!

    August 7, 2014

  • Vennesa C.

    =( I dont have any equipment to bring.
    Any suggestions on what I should bring and where I can find it.

    August 6, 2014

    • Laura J

      Hi Venessa, I suggest an Olympus digital recorder but the specific kind all depends on what you want to do with your recordings. Some people want to just listen to them and some people what to download them to their computers. If you go to this event I definitely have alot of equipment you can look at and possibly use. I wouldn't sink alot of money into anything until you try it out and see how you like it. I hope to see you at this investigation and welcome to the group. Laura

      August 6, 2014

    • Krysta

      Hello Venessa, I also have quite a bit of equipment I will be bringing that you can look at and maybe use. It is best to try things out before spending all the money. I would also say definitely get a voice recorder because if investigating is not for you, you can use that again in different situations. Hope to meet you at the investigation.

      August 6, 2014

  • Krysta

    I am looking forward to this. Telling all my friends and team members about it. Thanks for putting this together.
