This museum was once an old jail and is believed to be haunted by Luc Simone Aury. Aury was a criminal wanted for rape, murder, robbery, and perhaps even more charges. He was sentenced to hanging on the gallows in the back. He attempted to slit his own throat on the night before his execution to save himself the humiliation. But he was caught and stitched up by a surgeon to keep him alive. When he was hung the next day, his stitches popped open, making blood spew out into the crowd of people. It caused a riot of trampling, screaming and women fainting. Aury's ghost has been heard moaning in the building, and his apparition has been seen with a bloody gash in his neck.
