I've been on a history tour and several ghost tours. I've always had a good time and have experienced some paranormal activity. If you're not into ghosts, they have an excellent history tour during the day. Be sure to check their times on their website. This is a private residence, so if you're not attending an event, you're not allowed on the property. Give this place a chance and learn some neat history about Springfield's own castle!

Went here for prom. The outside is gorgeous. The inside is a tad bit disappointing. It wasn't as grand as I had imagined, and it's decorated like my great grandma's house. But still neat and historical. The lawn is gorgeous and great for pictures.

Neat place, but left a little to be desired. I thought when it said this was a restored castle it would have been full of antique furniture etc. That was not the case. We went on the ghost tour and I found the evidence to be really lacking too. This tour is definitely not for anyone who can't do stairs. I read some other reviews saying you could see the downstairs if not able to go upstairs, but the tour didn't really go through much of the downstairs. I'd skip it if you have anyone elderly with you who can't do stairs or walk long distances. The rooms they showed us seemed even less haunted by the remnants of other things the castle tried to be. There were leftover exhibits like a medieval kitchen scene in the basement, giant rock monster, giant toy blocks that just really made it hokey and seem not cared about and leftover from some other gimmick they once tried. Video really needs to be redone in the beginning and the tour guides really need to be microphoned. It was very hard to hear anything being said. We did like doing blackouts and going in the service tunnel. That was the scariest part!

Great experience! The ghosts are present. All areas felt fine except the upstairs room. There was something wrong there. The whole time, you get a feeling that there is a presence. And you can witness this with your eyes, but you need a good camera. Somebody caught a face in a hallway. My mother witnessed a little boy running accrossed the room. This is all 100% true.
