"I was on the fourth floor of the Museum of Nature in Ottawa, on vacation with my mother, father and younger sister. My sister and I were excited to check out the exhibition area that was currently being used as a summer camp for kids. I just got up that stairs and started hurrying across the open hall to that wing of the building and got this intense feeling like I was being watched. As I continued forward the feeling got more intense and began to turn into intense fear and finally a feeling that something terrible was about to happen if I took one more step. It really startled me and I went from speed walking to a complete stop in about five steps. The feelings came on so quickly and were so intense that my sister ran by me in the same direction and I became so terrified for her safety that I screamed for her to slow down and stop. My mother seemed to recognize how uncharacteristic this was for me and how visibly upset I was and therefore just told us to go into a different part of the building. Prior to this trip I had never even heard of the Museum of Nature before. We all took a Haunted Ghost tour around Ottawa a few days later. I had almost forgotten about the previous incident yet it was brought back to mind when the tour guide began to tell us the stories and history behind the Museum of Nature, including how the area on the fourth floor where I had felt so scared was where most of the sightings and phenomena occur. Even before I could react my whole family was looking at me shocked, realizing that maybe my emotional freak out a few days prior had some hidden explanation. I have tried to look for similar stories but have yet to find any so I thought I would share my experience with you.
