About This Place:


Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (TALA) is a mental health facility turned museum that offers tours through 130 years of the treatment of mental illness.

The Asylum has had apparition sightings, unexplainable voices, and sounds, and other paranormal activity reported in the past by guests, staff, SyFy’s Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters Academy, the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures, and Paranormal Challenge. Step back in time and see how the mentally insane lived, and died, within these walls.

Thousands have been committed to the asylum over the years, and hundreds, unfortunately, died here. Decide for yourself if they’re still occupying the historic wards and treatment rooms.
