UCL Museums Murder Mystery for Museums at Night

  • 16 May 2014 6:30-9pm

Something is afoot at UCL Museums: a body has been discovered on campus and we need your help to solve the murder!

Was it Prof. Grant in the Grant Museum with the elephant tusk? Or perhaps Mr. Bentham in the Octagon Gallery with the walking stick? Or Miss Edwards In the Petrie Museum with the water clock?

Join us for an evening of intrigue and subterfuge, and solve the clues across the Museum to crack the UCL Museum murder mystery. Come as a team of up to five and there are prizes to be won for the team who can solve the case as well as for best dressed detectives on the night. The event is followed by a free drinks reception and a private view of the Grant Museum of Zoology. This event is part of Museums at Night and is free.
