History of Madness: Abandoned Arkham Asylum Violently Insane Wards P1


  • Great video as always. It's really interesting to hear the history, even though I'm from UK, and see what's left . Stepping back into an awful time, but then get brought back to reality bye seeing all the graffiti. Thank you. Take care 😊

  • love the docu-style history featured in the beginning. That you are narrating both the documentary and exploration is remarkable. Keep it up!!!!

  • I don't understand how you don't have more views/subscribers. Best abandoned channel, by far. No accounting for taste I guess. Keep it up.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  • Love the history that you provide also. Gives the video such a different feel than the average explore… I'm a history buff and eat this upπŸ€£πŸ‘πŸ‘

  • To this day electro shock therapy is still in practice.. and for some it’s the only remedy to bring them back…

  • Ha! Finding an unwatched upload of yours with subtitles is like finding a nugget of gold in the river. Happy days. Here's to a zen-like 32 minutes of no real life drama or distractions…

  • Three geese in a flock.
    One flew east, one flew west,
    One flew over the cuckoo's nest.
    O-U-T spells OUT,
    Goose swoops down and plucks you out.

    You know that no smoking sign at the end, after you went through a nightmarish and descriptive, detailed list of gruesome, agonising, horrifying deaths and murders and suicides seems to frame itself in a rather crazy sense of pointless rules. What a place, and it was but one wing for the violently insane. To think, as I told you previously, a place exactly like this is still operating in Ireland, in Antrim, makes it even more terrible. You can really empathise with those who ended up in such places when you learn about them. Thanks for that rather dark yet intriguing 32 minutes. Good job, lads and lassies, for capturing for the last time what will be lost forever.

    I'm going to see if there's more uploads I missed ha πŸ™‚

  • I love your explores… steady and easy to view. Happy that you make it about the place and not you.Too many keep the camera on themselves πŸ™‚

  • Thank you for the well researched history before the video. You are well spoken and your video of this sad place is by far, the best "abandoned video" I have seen in terms of intelligence and documentation. Thank you and please keep 'em coming!!

  • The graffiti is disgusting and soooo disrespectful!!! What is wrong with people? Doesn't matter what era your from…respect is EARNED…NOT given!!!

  • I do abandoned photography. It's been my experience and observation…once the windows go the rest follows shortly thereafter. Wish I could ring the necks of those who vandalize. Hundreds of thousands succumb to ruin because idiots can't just take pictures and leave only footprints.

  • We have one of these in my town. They are destroying it. It is very sad, and still beautiful compared to this place. It makes my heart heavy. If you come do the one in Fergus Falls, MN, can I go with you? They don't let many in anymore.

  • Mouse button to be a problem with the other side and the same thing happened to the next few days ago but it is very important to said

  • You all need to get better lights because those flashlights don't light enough. By the way you have a great narration voice.

  • Thankyou for this video πŸ™‚ I have just stumbled upon it and I must say it's so good to see how much work you've put into this. The history is so nice to hear on the place as alot of videos I find don't give you much history if any at all You have a great narrative voice. I love seeing old buildings and learning all about them.

  • Thankyou for the history in the introduction. Imagine former staff seeing the place as it is today. Be quite confronting. Large health facilities can be creepy even when they are fully functional.
    As for the grafetti vandals they need to be stripped tagged and bagged.

  • Thank you for this remarkable documentary. this type of architecture really needs to have a second life because, today, they would be too expensive to reproduce. they are remarkable and should be reused instead of being destroyed by GREEEEEED!!!!!

  • May SATAN take care of the morally retarded vandals & seriously low-life graffiti zombies that crawl around there!

  • I LOVE the sound of your voice. You could be reading the New York City telephone book and I'd listen with undivided attention.

  • Between the vandals and taggers l'd say the building is still sheltering the criminally insane. Great explore friends, thanks!


  • Anyone else feel saddened to see such a wonderful building being left to just rot?
    Also I find it hard to imagine these places were once brand new, with fresh paint and interiors and people were proud of such places.
    Imagine your local hospital or place of work may end up like this one day in the future!

  • An abandoned asylum, going derelict and wreaked by mindless visitors doing graffiti all over the walls. This place needs demolishing

  • I just stumbled upon yoir channel, and im sooo glad I did! I'm obsessed with history and documentaries , and the docu-style videos are amazing! I'm here to stay! πŸ’š

  • How creepy…you can actually hear the wind howl at one point. ..outside the activityroom…in the dark. …πŸ‘»

  • Seeing this place before the most recent fire and when you still needed a key to get into most places, those were good times. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

  • I love that you give the history first, so many of these explore video don't and I have to try and find info for myself. Your voice over is very well done also. Blessings.

  • I hope every tagger got a nice dose of asbestos, lead and black mold, they are not artists they are gangbangers with rattle cans or wiggers

  • This was once such a beautiful compound. It’s so sad that the β€œtreatments β€œ that went on her were so abhorrent. You can’t cure people with torture. Am sure the intentions we admirable at the time. Very informative and interesting doc. Thank you 😊

  • 11:10 good job videographer. Lol
    Somebody needs new yoga pants. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜…πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ

  • OMG absolutely horrible but informative x can't understand how some people think it's their right to judge others x

  • Its too bad it has been so vandalized . still a very creepy place. I would think you'd get a lot of good evps there! Very well done video. I appreciate the time you spent, obviously, on the history of the place.

  • I got a bit excited about this explore but then I was wtf… I'm sorry but I was waiting for the next my little pony to walk in with the name twilight sparkle… And I could not understand why you were pointing out things that were not relevant like the birds next the bag left behind as that is not relevant to the history or focusing on the graffiti… in a historic buildings you need BETTER lighting but focus on the architectural side of of.. the building decaying the way It is or falling apart.. etc.. think that chick needs better pants that are not see threw wearing a g-string lol… But I really do hope to watch more in the future and they get better the more you go… But a hint I have found with even my go pro is that they are not real good for confined areas they distort a lot in hallways etc… But good luck apart from that I did like the history and the buildings

  • Those taggers are real shit and there mother and father did a terrible job at bringing up children . History is better left alone . hard life (MULDEW) ~ gary b *

  • Buncha fuckwit boomers bitching about graffiti in a doomed building like the old women they probably are. What kinda soft-ass life must you lead to get so upset over dead property? and meanwhile they don't so much as blink at the casual obscenity of people living on the streets or dying without healthcare. But some bored teenagers attempt to be creative in their own drunken retarded way…Yeah, on second thought, that's some wack-ass art, nevermind

  • I had no idea that there was a REAL Arkham Asylum,😱 thought that was just in Batman etc. The history of the place is really fascinating, and so interesting to watch you and the team go into the actual buildings.☺ Unfortunately the graffiti ruined the moment, as it was quire hard to get the feel if the place, with writing in most parts. But then in other parts you did get that Erie feel especially when you were talking about how there were so many shocking deaths. Can't wait for part two. Well done.πŸ‘πŸ‘

  • Very interesting to learn of the history, it's a shame so much time was spent walking round a derelict building. I would have preferred to have learnt more about the history of past residents

  • The mesh in the glass was to hold glass in place to isolate fires to a section and help choak out fires even schools used that glass

  • I just discovered this channel. But your voice sounds so familiar, as though I have heard you narrating videos on other channels. Is that the case?

  • Hi guys great video and awesome and love the history you tell too ❀️ love hearing about history I have been watching your videos they are great to watch much love to you all πŸ‘ β€οΈπŸ‘ β€οΈπŸ‘ β€οΈπŸ‘ β€οΈπŸ‘ ❀️
