Ghost Doctors

Ancient Egyptian Mummies Enjoy a Paranormal Read in NYC Metropolitan Museum of Art

Situated prominently within the Egyptian wing of NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art is a manual for the recently departed entitled the “Book of the Dead.” Could this ancient papyrus still be instructing some wayward ghosts that walk the halls of this iconic museum? Maybe so says the Ghost Doctors.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/20/2017 -- If an ancient Egyptian ghostly spirit needed directions on how to navigate the afterlife he or she didn't have to pull their chariot over at a local rest station, they would just refer to their personal copy of the "Book of the Dead" to find their way through the netherworld. And it seems that a few ghostly spirits may still be sneaking a peak at this ancient road map according to New York's own Ghost Doctors (aka Dr. Pete and Dr. Stew) paranormal investigators and licensed NYC tour guides.

In fact, the Ghost Doctors have been leading groups of adventurous amateur ghost hunters through a variety of NYC's iconic landmarks including the world famous Metropolitan Museum of Art. Their ghostly hunts through the Met first begin with a crash course in ghost hunting 101 which includes the use of a variety of ghost hunting equipment. Following their training, the Ghost Doctors then lead their bands of rookie ghost hunters through the multitude of hallways and galleries of this mammoth institution searching for signs of paranormal encounters which now includes a special emphasis on certain paranormal reading material located in the Egyptian wing of the Met.

"The ancient Egyptians held the afterlife in great reverence and much of their culture was devoted to the belief that death is only the beginning," says Dr. Stew. "But these same ancient people didn't leave anything to chance especially when taking a trip to the afterlife. They would pack their copy of the Book of the Dead -- a manual of sorts composed of magical spells and instructions that enabled them to navigate the underworld."

Moreover, on a recent ghostly hunt through NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Ghost Doctors picked up some unusual goings-on in the vicinity of this ancient guide book to the afterlife. With their doctors bag of ghost hunting equipment in hand accompanied by a group of anxious but excited ghost hunters in training, they detected some signs of paranormal activity.

"We were passing through the Egyptian wing when some of our instrumentation was activated. We all sprang into action and started working together as we encountered some unusual findings. And it's always exciting especially when ghost hunting is a team effort," says Dr. Pete.

The Ghost Doctors say each and every ghost hunt is unique as they never know what will turn up which is not only mysterious but a heck of a lot of fun as well.

So if one happens to be walking through the Met and runs into an ancient Egyptian mummy searching for their favorite book, no worries, the Ghost Doctors will be their librarian on call to point them in the right direction.
