Tri-Cities Historical Museum at 200 Washington Ave. Grand Haven MI
When a murder occurs during a Museum gala, you and your team must race to collect clues & solve the crime before the murderer strikes again!
About the Event
You have been invited to a reception honoring a recent archaeological discovery: an artifact that drastically changes what we know about local history. It's a prestigious occasion and you're excited to meet the woman who made the discovery, the daughter of a well-respected local archaeologist.
As the evening begins, however, it's clear that something is not quite right. When a body is discovered in the Museum, the police arrive and immediately ascertain the person was a victim of foul play. Hoping to crack the case quickly, the detective on scene asks the event attendees for assistance with the investigation. Together in teams, you and the other attendees must identify suspects, conduct interviews, and put together clues in a race against time to find the murderer before he or she strikes again.
How to Participate:
This event is a Museum fundraiser and is intended for ages 21+ only. The evening will include dinner and drink tickets, and will offer a cash bar, plus the chance to test your sleuthing skills against the other participants and win prizes!
Second, wait for your 'gala' invitation to arrive in the mail.
Your 'invitation' will provide more background on the characters in this murder mystery, and will hold potential clues that may point you to the 'murderer' in this case! The scene is set for your arrival on the evening of the event!
Finally, crack the case!
Search for the murder weapon, interrogate witnesses and suspects, and build your case, all while exploring the Museum. Each individual/team will have the opportunity to investigate exhibits where clues have been placed, interview the players, and present their findings at the end of the evening. Earn points for determining the motive, the murderer, and the murder weapon. The individual or the team with the highest point score will win the top prize!
