Come and play detective at a Murder Mystery event at Verulamium Museum on Saturday 22 February and solve the murder of the curator.
Hobby detectives will get to interview museum staff acting out roles from Cleaner to Director, to find out who murdered the fictitious museum curator ‘John Mortis’. The curator is responsible for looking after the museum collection and displaying it to the public.
Cllr Mike Wakely, Portfolio Holder for Sports, Leisure and Heritage for St Albans City and District Council, said: “This is a unique Murder Mystery event for all the family to enjoy. In between quizzing the various museum characters to solve this murder mystery, you can explore the museum’s wonderful collection and possibly find some additional clues.”
The event runs from 11am to 4pm and is open to anyone aged 7 years and above.
You can play detective on your own or pool your resources as a couple or family group. It costs £5 to participate in the event, either as an individual or a group, plus admission to the museum. Please note admission to the museum is free to St Albans residents.
Participating groups and individuals will be given an inspector’s badge and have the opportunity to enter a verdict in a prize draw to win a detective game.
